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 makes her look older, which is a good thing, but I really did like it longer

I did the same cut when I was her age and I regretted it for a long long time since it’s hard to grow out that sort of haircut. I hate it, sorry, she’s a cute girl but only Halle Berry can carry off that kind of haircut.

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh nnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooo!

I don’t think that looks good on her at all…I know hair grows back but it’s going to take a long time…

Aw, I guess I can understand why she did and it’s hard to see from this photo, but I don’t really like it. Not a fair shot to judge it on though.

Why cant women have short hair without being compared to being a boy? I mean come on. Short hair was all the rage in the 90’s.

She looks very pretty. I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

Carolyn on

I think she looks great. It is a much more sophisticated look and as she is “grown up” I think it is very appropriate!

Vicki on

Not a good hair cut at all…but if she is happy who cares?!

Andrew on

I don’t like it. She should go back to long hair.

I’d like to see a better picture of her before I say whether I like it or not. From this angle and with the wind blowing the front of it like that, it doesn’t look very flattering but it might be really cute.
