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

She looks great and is able to show confidence of having a new hairdo! Hair grows back. She can grow it back to the same length if she wants to.

This came as a real shock if I’m honest. But I think she has pulled it off well. Well done, Emma ^^

Love the hair, rarely is someone able to pull off long and short hair but she does, and does it well!

too many people are a slave to their hair. I’ve seen woman who aren’t supposed to be blond, whose hair sounds like potato chip bags, it’s so dry. love to see people who remember that it’s just hair. loving it. she has the right face shape for it. beautiful.

This is simply unforgivable. No celebrity should be allowed to cut their hair or change their style in any way without consulting each and every one of their fans beforehand.

Love it! She has the features to pull it off.

Love it! Very Mia Farrow in the ’60s. Good move to break away from Hermione hair and carve a new image for the post-Potter career.

Yeah, the first time I saw it I thought she looked real good, but this isn’t a studio image and you can see it looks really really bad.

It’s gonna get messy when it grows out again, but it looks like it’s grown a lot since she debuted it and maybe for the better.

She looked better with long hair and she will grow it back, hopefully.
