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

Its her head she can do with it as she pleases. If she likes the look that’s all that counts!

Love it! I think it’s well deserved for all of the cast to be able to break away from the Potter series. To have a restriction on what you can do with yourself for 10 years is a long time. It’s time for them to really delve into who they are and express that! They are more of a treat to read about than say another teen cast who have only been in their franchise for 3 years and sorta seem to whine about needing distance.

We all have made the mistake of a bad short haircut, at least she can pay for some real good hair extensions! :p

The cut reminds me of Adam Lambert.

Love it. She looks so awesome

Here we go again – cutting the hair to show liberation, and demonstrate toughness. She looks good. She is probably quietly auditioning for The Girl with Dragon Tatoo.

Now she can play the main character in “The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo”

It good to know that an actress’ haircut is newsworthy. Makes me proud of American journalism.
