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 think it looks cute on her! I can imagine how much easier it is for her now to take care of after having her hair long. Good for her in doing what makes her happy!!!

she would make a very cute boy.

I think she looks very pretty, but that’s regardless of the haircut, not because of it. Personally I preferred her long locks. In any case, she likes it, that’s what matters.

Looks amazing! Short hair is always amazing in the summer time! Harry Potter hair no more!

Ewww! :P

I really liked her long curly hair! I don’t know if I like this ‘do at all. Maybe if it was at a different angle and styled different. However, from this random angle it doesn’t flatter her very well.
