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

This is not her most flattering look. At least it will grow out in time. I think she looks beautiful with shoulder length waves.

NOOOO!!! She does not look good like this. However if she likes it and it makes her feel good, more power to her, but nooooo!

Well, hmmmm I gotta say I’m not liking it too much. It really makes her look years older. Maybe its just the picture.

I definitely think she can carry off short hair–let’s face it, she’s adorable. I think THIS short hair style is all wrong. I’m seeing some helmut-hear here.
Hopefully it’s just the wind and it’s actually a brilliant look.
