Emma Watson Loses Her 'Potter' Locks: Love It or Hate It?

08/05/2010 at 12:15 PM ET


Oh boy! Britain’s pint size fashion plate Emma Watson has made her latest style turn—or should we say cut? Following in the recent sheering footsteps of celebs-gone-pixie like Hayden Panettiere and Cate Blanchett, the fashionista was snapped with a boy-short haircut while out and about in N.Y.C.’s West Village earlier this week and confirmed her new do on Twitter and Facebook with accompanying self portrait, telling fans, “Feels incredible. I love it.” With the wrap of the Harry Potter film franchise this past spring, Watson’s made a clear cut from her Hogwarts alter-ego Hermione Granger and her famously bushy locks, but like the onscreen know-it-all, she carefully considered her decision to go short: “I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever.” It’s a look that’s sure to turn heads when the Ivy Leaguer returns for her second year at Brown University in the fall, and we look forward to seeing the style risk taker put her signature mark on the look – on and off campus. Tell us: What do you think of Emma’s new cut?Christie LaRusso

It’s okay, I preferred it longer. But as long as she likes it… who cares?

I doubt I will get used to this new look for her. I liked the Hermione Granger look better.

Good-bye Hermoine. Thanks for all the good memories.

I think she looks much better with long hair.

Gee Went from pretty to pretty dumb looking, but her friends will lie to her and tell her it looks cute.

Women do not have to have long hair in order to be seen as pretty or feminine. It has to be a good cut though, and this one is not.

I hate when girls do this! If you have nice hair you shouldn’t cut it this short. Maybe Harry can cast a spell on her to make it grow back faster?
