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

I think every woman has to experience having short locks at some point in her life, just to see what it’s like. Emma is a cute girl, but I will say, I much prefer her with longer hair.

This could be a bad photo of a great haircut. In this photo, the “do” looks too harsh, too tomboy-like. Hayden Panettiere’s and Cate Blanchett’s cuts are softer, more feminine, and much more sophisticated…c’mon, does Cate Blanchett ever do anything that is not classy? Wait to see a better photo before passing judgment. Emma Watson definitely has the natural beauty to pull this look off…and do it very well!

I LOVE her new haircut!

Isn’t anyone else tired of seeing hair extensions?

Just as many people believe that short hair doesn’t look good on some people, the same can be said for long hair.

Long hair is not a requirement for female beauty. Emma Watson looks great!
