Emma Watson Growing out Her Short Hair Cut

When Emma Watson chopped her long locks last summer, it was to mark the end of her Harry Potter days — contractually, she couldn’t cut her hair while playing Hermione. But since debuting her pixie cut in August, the actress has been trying to grow the ‘do a bit — this time, to get acting roles. At the ELLE Style Awards in London last night, where Watson received the Style Icon award from Vivienne Westwood, the starlet revealed to reporters that she’s liking her extra length. “I am trying to grow it but it’s slow, it’s taking a while obviously,” she told ELLE. “If I want to keep acting then it’s more flexible for me to have it longer for different roles, it’s quite a specific cut. I’m kind of looking forward to getting to a cute little bob stage.” Though we can imagine if a director really wanted to work with the talented young star, they’d find a way to deal with the hair! Tell us: What hairstyle do you think Emma should rock next?

I think you should do what you want to do, not because someone else wants you to. I think you look very nice with the short haircut. If they think your talent is great then why compremise it’s not your hair that gets the job it’s your talent.

I think her hair was really adorable, but she cut it. she was looking beauty full with her last hair and still beauty full with this hair cut, cause she is beauty full, and as for the directors i wanna say: you need an actress or a model? if you need an actress than no one is better than her, and if you need a model then you can find another person, if you really want her to act in your films then you must accept her with her this hair cut(looking beauty full), and as for my beauty emma: i would like to tell that please no more hair cuts until your hairs fully growing like past, then you can give the shape you want, and as for the people who don’t liked emma’s new hair cut: if you really like her, then you must accept her as she is and will be or if you just like her cause she is beauty full and a famous actress then it’s another thing. as for me: i am trying and will try to have a met with her……..

Long or short she is still beautiful.

I still can’t believe she cut her hair. I agree it makes her look like a little boy. She will be lucky to get any acting job looking the way that she does.

Long hair,short hair…doesn’t diminish Emma’s talents or beauty.This smart ,talented ,obviously gorgeous young lady will go far in everything she participates in.I for one wish her well.

I loved her hair that she had in the latest couple Harry Potter movies. Even when it’s straight, it’s gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to have hair like Emma’s, and I wish she’d grow it back long. Please, Emma! Grow it out again!
