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 do not care for her new hair style. It is not flattering.

This photo doesn’t do her justice. Why didn’t you just post up the one she had on Facebook…?

It is not her best look, but it looks better on her than it did on Hayden. That being said, very few women could pull of that short of a cut, Halle Berry and Sharon Stone come to mind but other than them I am drawing a blank.

One word: Yuck

She posted a picture of her new do on her website and it’s really cute.

She will always be gorgeous not matter what she does with her hair. Even though I loved it when her locks were long, I think she will definitely rock her new hairstyle.

When she changes her mind there’s always extensions. A good weave for somebody who can afford it.

hmm, hard to say if its a flattering look for her. but good for her for just doing and loving it! after so many years of being in the same character for Harry Potter movies, maybe this will help people see her as someone else besides Hermoine Granger… best wishes.
