Emma Watson Talks Short Hair at 'Harry Potter' Premiere

11/12/2010 at 10:06 AM ET


Emma Watson may be appearing in what is sure to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, but she’s still having to deal with a few mixed reviews — on her short pixie cut from earlier this year! “Generally the reaction’s been positive but it’s a bit of a shock for some people because it’s different,” Watson told reporters. The young star has admitted she chopped her hair off for the first time at 20 years old simply because she was allowed to, now that her time as bushy-haired Hermione Granger had come to an end. But what about taking that darling do bright red or platinum blonde? “I’m very into looking natural so probably not but never say never,” Watson demurred. One thing that is certain is the thrill of the first of the two-part finale hitting theaters. “It gets bigger every year. I can’t believe it. The adrenaline from doing this is pretty crazy,” Watson said. “I feel like I’m about to go over the top of a rollercoaster.” At least she has the stylish wardrobe part of the red carpet rush nailed down, looking perfectly fun and fashionable in her vintage black lace by Rafael Lopez for Atelier Mayer and Charlotte Olympia heels. Tell us: What do you think of Emma’s haircut? — Reporting by Simon Perry

Elizabeth on

Too cute!! Love it on her!

Jon on

I like Emma Watson’s new hair-cut!

Em on

Emma is gorgeous. Very few “flubs”, no matter where or when. Her haircut frames her face beautifully. She’s a talented, wise, smart woman who isn’t pinning her future on her Harry Potter past.

Angel on

Hard to believe this is the cute little currly haired kid from 10 years ago. She looks lovely and grew up well. Her hair is perfect and her dress is fun and appropriate for her.

Em on

And did you notice she’s wearing a Remembrance Day poppy?!!!
Thank you, Emma!

Krystal on

She looks gorgeous!!

Traci on

It looks great! I love the pixie look!

Denise on

She is such a pretty girl. She looks fantastic!!!
I love it!!!!

JR Jake on

Emma is just downright cute. Bald head or Mohawk, she’s got a great smile, pleasant to look at, beautiful eyes and is fun to boot. What is she like personally….don’t know her? However when a person states she is ashamed because of her wealth, that tells me alot about her. She’s got is goin on!

Natalie on

She is a beauty, and this haircut suites her perfectly. And I love that she is in college and values an education. Go girl!!!!

Shannon on

I absolutely love it. She looks all grown up. Nice job Emma!

Kim on

Love her haircut… and her dress is too super cute!!!!

Bella Reich on

Sorry…I hate short hair period. I think it looks “manish” and really bad on 99.9% of the people who have it and unfortunately Emma is no exception! She looks like a 7 year old who got dragged to the beauty salon by mom in the heat of the summer to get a “no nonsense” summer look.

cynlee on

She is stunning!

ginger on

Stunning! In addition, she is gracious and polite. What a refreshing change.

Sheila on

Hair looks GREAT! She is beautiful no matter what length she chooses for her hair.

Lexi on

I’m jealous…wish I could be that brave and adorable in the cut!

kelly on

I think it looks adorable on her. Not many can pull off that style, but she has the perfect face for it.

RD on

Absolutely beautiful!

sally on

She’s a gorgeous girl, no doubt, but her hair is atrocious. It’s the same style as my grandma and grandpa, ’nuff said.

gramma on

She looks adorable.

Deanna on

I think her hair cut is very pretty. It actually reveals how pretty she really is.

Selina on

She looks so lovely.

Julie on

Perfect — just perfect!

Ricky on

Ugh. Sorry ladies, but I notice it’s nearly all women saying they love this hair cut. Although they may not admit it to you – especially if your hair is short – most guys prefer longer hair on women over these supershort hair cuts. I know the hate will now begin but I’m just being honest. Oh, and Emma is beautiful, no matter what she does, but I found her more beautiful with longer hair.

sarah on

Too cute! She can definetly pull it off!

kwan on

she looks amazing in this dress.
she’s the best actress smart , rich , beautiful and etc

pattcake on


Jeanna Brown on

I think it looks awesome. She looks mature. What is wrong with a witch having short hair and being adorable? Way to go Emma.

kayla on


Traci on

Emma haircut is absolutely adorable. It’s a very nice cut for her small frame.

Crystal on

Emma really looks wonderful. Our little girl has grown up. Change is nice!

Mel on

I didn’t love it at first but with her face made up pretty and that killer dress, it’s really grown up and fresh. I don’t think she needs to color it though. Her natural color is good for her.

helene on

Who even cares if men like longer hair? She is intelligent, talented and dressed in great style- perfectly appropriate for her age. If your man doesn’t like your short haircut, I say….DEALBREAKER!!

Kim on

I love her hair like this!!

Lisa on

That cut looks great on her! I love it.

Becky on

I hate the new haircut… but she’s a very beautiful girl.

Kassie on

I don’t know why some people have the ARCHAIC view that women need long hair to be considered feminine.
There’s nothing wrong with experimenting different hairstyles long and short ESPECIALLY when you’re young.
BTW, Emma looks gawwwwgeous! She should ignore the haters. She look HAWT!

Jana on

I wish I could pull off something like that! Adorable!

deb on

I think she looks beautiful

Lori on

Emma is what young Hollywood girls should aspire to be!

Tony on

Well she used to look pretty with long hair, now she looks decidedly boyish.

Angie on

One word…. STUNNING!

Val on

Love it, Emma! I have a pixie, have had it for decades and I get compliments ALL the time. And I never get told I don’t look feminine. Plus, my husband likes short hair on gals…guess I am lucky.

Andrea on

I can hardly blame her for chopping off her hair–she’s finally done with Harry Potter and ready to move on. She probably enjoys the anonymity that came following the cut. The cut itself is OK, but it will look cuter once it grows out a bit. I could see a nice swept bang with a shorter back looking amazing on her.

connie on


Positive on

Se is lovely, with short hair, long hair, no matter what. Besides, she is smart and talented. What else??? She is beautiful. She is all grown up and enjoying it.

Janom on

LOVE it!!!

Wendy on

Lisa on

Very classy girl! I love her! :)

Anne on

It is outstanding!

Anita on

I have the same haircut as Emma’s and love it…she always looks chic and cool.

Evil Minx on

Normally, I’m not a fan of women’s hair cut this short… but this looks absolutely adorable on her. If they ever do another Peter-Pan-themed movie, I think she’d be the cutest Tinkerbell.

Danielle on

I think she is beautiful although I don’t particulary care for this cut. Very few women can really pull off the super short pixie look. I do give her props for changing up her look and not playing it safe with her hair or fashion choices in general.

Tami on

Love it!

Elle on

No one can deny she looks GREAT with short, pixie hair. And good for her — long hair gets soooo boring!

Lucy on


roses on

Noticed she is wearing the poppy on the wrong side. Would think she would have gotten that one right???

Bob on

She simply is one of the most attractive young ladies on the planet. She could be bald and would still be beautiful.

Madge on

Pretty face, but I HATE her hair! Oh well, it will grow. I think she would have looked great with a bob.

Karen F on


AMF on


Gary on

She Is Beautiful No Matter What.

Cody on

Emma is a beautiful and talented young actress. She is making a change and moving forward from her experiences with the Harry Potter franchise rather than allowing that to become the highlight of her career. As far as her current look? Gorgeous.

Lena on

I think Emma’s hair cut makes her look grown up. She’s 20 and now she looks like it. She’s shaking off that childish look and turning into a beautiful young lady. Classy suites you Emma.

Alhambra on

Very fashionable and she look drop dead gorgeous!! Good for her. Totally a grown up.

Joe on

eastietom on

She’s adorable no matter what she does to her hair.

Jacie on

I love her hair and outfit! When I was about twenty I too cut my hair off and kept it pixie short for about five years and then started to grow it back out. Change is usually a positive thing. Helps us grow up.

It is my belief mesothelioma can be the most lethal cancer. It has unusual properties. The more I look at it the more I am persuaded it does not act like a true solid tissues cancer.
