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 remember when Keri Russel cut her hair and her show Felicity was ruined because of it. I hope she doesn’t lose her Burbery contract. Short hair ruins star power unless your a lesbian like Ellen.

I agree Tutt. I loved peter pan. I’m sure if it grows alittle i’ll get used to it.

I can’t believe Harry Potter films has ended. Guess why that’s why she cut her hair. I mean cos she doesn’t have to play Hermione anymore so she can cut it. She still looks beautiful and it’s alright, I loved her hair before but this still looks nice. OH I LOVE HER SO MUCH.

i don’t think this is the best picture to judge from. her hair is obviously blowing in the wind on a hot, humid NYC day. let’s see it styled and then poll readers.

This is not a good shot. I saw another picture on another website where she looked really pretty. I think it suits her well.
