Emma Watson: New Pixie Haircut Was “The Most Liberating Thing”


Aug 05, 2010

Posted by John Admin

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) described her recent short pixie haircut as “the most liberating thing!” to Entertainment Weekly. “The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out. It felt amazing’ continued the actress, also commenting that she “missed all that experimentation that most teenagers go through.” For continuity purposes in her role as Hermione Granger, Watson had to keep her hair in the same style for a decade whilst she worked on the Harry Potter films.

Watson further remarks that she has wanted to cut her hair since the age of “about 16 so as soon as I had the chance I was like, ‘Right. This is it.’” The short EW.com article features a Polaroid of Watson’s new hair from Entertainment Weekly’s upcoming Fall Movie Preview issue.

In related news, Emma Watson updated her new Facebook page and Twitter account to comment further on the haircut, once again describing it as liberating. On Facebook, Watson wrote:

Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago… Feels incredible. I love it. I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like. Big love from Emma x

A new black and white photo of Watson sporting her new look has been uploaded to the Facebook page and can be seen in our galleries at this link.

Avatar ImageMarenSusanna says: She looks beautiful! Thumbs up for untraditional haircuts! :DAvatar ImageDeliaDee says: It really depresses me that a haircut can be considered a stop-the-presses moment. Aren't there more interesting things to write about. I mean, it's just hair.Avatar Imagemollywobble says: She looks great. Good luck Emma. Avatar Imagespiritbound says: I was really shocked at this haircut but im coming around to it. Well done emma for having the guts to do it =]Avatar ImageScottMan says: NYAH! Gorgeous! Just when I thought she couldn't get any prettier. And I wouldn't call this a "stop the presses" moment. More like a reason for entertainment outlets to show more pictures of Emma Watson. That's their turf.Avatar ImagePotter_Puella says: Shocking! She looks amazing! I think I might like her longer hair a little better...but I think this will grow on me. :)Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Yeah, it's not like the report came from the New York Times or something...it's Entertainment Weekly. Once in a while (actually, quite often) they do stories which are really just fluff. Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: No more bushy hair! No really - Emma looks beautiful. Avatar Imagesilverdoe65 says: She still looks beautifulAvatar Imageowlsocks says: OMG! Nooooooo! Not Emma too! Women look horrible with short hair. Awful. So sad. :-(Avatar Imagedobby_rocks says: She looks nice. Avatar Imagedobby_rocks says: She looks nice. Avatar Imageblackhawks88 says: i don't like it I'm not saying she looks horrible but I don't like her hair cut she totally stepped out of the Hermione she used to be. All I can say is, Really Emma? Really?! She was way better with longer hairAvatar Imageblackhawks88 says: i don't like it I'm not saying she looks horrible but I don't like her hair cut she totally stepped out of the Hermione she used to be. All I can say is, Really Emma? Really?! She was way better with longer hair Avatar Imageblackhawks88 says: i don't like it I'm not saying she looks horrible but I don't like her hair cut she totally stepped out of the Hermione she used to be. All I can say is, Really Emma? Really?! She was way better with longer hair Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Looks nice!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: It looks nice!Avatar ImageKayWeasley says: I love it. She sort of reminds me of Twiggy in that picture.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: I love her pixie haircut! I think she looks even more beautiful! I have always wanted to cut my hair that shirt but been too chicken to do it... lolAvatar ImageCatherine says: OMG! its amazing! it looks cute...but i was shocked!Avatar ImageDawna says: I love it!Avatar ImageAsria says: WHY??? Her hair was so beautiful! I wouldn't have dared to do it, I almost didn't dare to cut my hair shoulder-long. Now it's longer again, and I love it!Avatar ImageShinyPineapple says: I think she looks beautiful and to all those who think she should have kept it long, it's HER hair not YOURS. Avatar Imagebookworm941 says: Personally, I liked her long hair better, but she still looks gorgeous. And I can see where she is coming from, if I were forced to keep my hair the same for a decade, I would want a drastic change to. Avatar Imageigo2pigfarts says: Beautiful like always! I love you Emma! Avatar ImageeiVega says: I absolutely love it. I think there is something so beautiful and impressive about a woman who can carry herself with short hair. It takes a certain confidence and class. Reminds me of Halle Berry. What bothers me is how much news this is getting. Why is everyone reporting a haircut?! I guess it's a big deal to her but for the rest of us? The bigger news to me is that she's in New York to promote Deathly Hallows Part 1. What is that about? Can we hear more about that PLEASE? Also, I really can't stand how hateful a lot of the reactions are. Leave her alone! It must really suck to have the whole world judging your new do. People need to get over it. Who cares if you don't like it. She loves it and that's enough. It's her hair. People cut their hair all the time, and guess what...it grows back and you can cut it again! Emma is gorgeous. It takes a strong, empowered woman to wear a cut that short and still feel feminine and sexy. She carries it well. Emma rocks.Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: im with owlsocks on this oneAvatar Imagekbicprez says: Emma's new "do" is GREAT! VERY COOL. I love Emma's unpredictability. It's very refreshing. Hey Emma, YOU GO GIRL!Avatar Imageheartless_wench says: very courageous on her part. It's a little too short, but as someone else said, it's her hair. She still looks good. I think it's funny that she couldnt change her hair for 10 years, yet Dan's hair was different for each movie. Remember the change between the shaggy HP4 and the clean-cut HP5?Avatar ImageHisss says: I don't dislike her new look, but I don't like it either. I can see why she would want to do it, but I think she may have gone a little too far.Avatar ImageGiant Fairy says: She can literally wear everything, even the famous Hogwarts toilet seat. Her FACE is just gorgeousAvatar Imagerotfang07 says: Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Portman, Twiggy, Halle Berry, all beautiful, all went the bob route, and all looked great, as does Emma. Pure class. Now she can move on. Hermione's history. Avatar ImageAvanelleWood says: Doing whatever you wish to your hair is something most people take for granted. Good for you, Emma. I think it's super cute.Avatar Imagelptaylor101 says: I think she looks beautiful! Like always! And what is with everything I've been seeing about people saying women don't look good with short hair? A few months ago I cut my hair this short and I absolutely love it. I feel much more confident and confidence is hot! Doing what you really want and what makes you feel best makes you present yourself in a different way. I think what these people mean is that THEY think women don't look good with short hair. No need to criticize people's personal choices. Sorry, I just took that personally I guess. It takes guts to cut your hair this short, even with it being a trend. I'm glad she had the guts to do what she wanted. That's a tough thing to do in a business where everyone watches your every move.Avatar Imageleonix says: I really love this haircut.There are some women whose faces just look ten times better when no long hair restricts their face. I never thought it but apparently Emma is one of those girls. I never quite realized how gorgeous her eyes were until she cut all this hair away. It looks awesome. And I say that as a person who is not really a big fan of Emma. But that she was brave enough to cut her hair like that, not caring about the traditional stereotypical images or the reaction of the press, really made her rise in my respect.Avatar Imagebrattyc says: It should make things a lot easier for her when she goes back to school. I've worn my hair short for as long as I can remember (not quite that short) and it's great to just wash and go. Besides, it's easy to grow back should she decide to. But for now she looks awesome...Twiggy's look definitely came to mind. I wonder if she donated the pony tail to 'Locks of Love', can you imagine some little girl getting a wig made from "Hermione's hair." :)Avatar Imagenimbus2010 says: this is different...buts it's nice. nice and modern. and for all you people who are saying it's not that good, you're gonna get used to it. it's just that you're used to seeing her with long hair. congrats emma for having the courage to chop off all your hair. i would never be able to do that. (man, imagine having the same style for 10 years! that's a pretty long time.)Avatar Imageanghela_DA.14 says: its not that i hate her hair but it seems she's not the booklover-hermione i used to love... but as a fan i will support her all the wayAvatar ImageCjw says: Definitely a new look but hey she seems excited about it so I think it was a good thing.Avatar ImageAnna Weasley says: At first glance she reminded me of Twiggy. But, as someone who recently shaved her head, I must agree with her that it is in fact liberating. And i do love it one her although i would pass her if I was to walk pass her. It so different.Avatar ImageHPFANDH98 says: personally i think she looks better with longer hair, but since she's wanted to do it for a while i guess its ok. Avatar Imagehalcyon says: She looks much better with shorter hair. It actually really suits her. It's cute!Avatar ImageLily_Phoenix says: When I was in eighth grade, I did the exact same thing. I know exactly what she means about the feeling of liberation. I remember going into school the following day and having half of my friends saying they liked it and having half of them say, not that they preferred it the other way, but that they hated it and they couldn't believe I would do something like that. All I can say is: To all of those people who laughed at me ... Obviously it was cool, because Emma Watson did the exact same thing! You go girl!Avatar ImageHPIsLegit says: People ! WAKE UP ! She isn't Hermione, she's Emma Watson ! She has a right to change and not look the exact same for the rest of her life. You're delusional if you think that's even possible. Taking the "super fan" to the extreme... Emma, you look fabulous. You're eyes and you face look 100% perfect with this cut. Gorgeous !Avatar ImageReader511 says: Oh, wow. She looks TERRIBLE. I didn't think there was anything she could do that would make her not look attractive, but I was wrong. This is the kind of haircut that will cause children to scream in fright.Avatar Imagesiriuslives12 says: It's horrible!! I don't care if doesn't want Hermione hair anymore, but boy hair!? Avatar Imagelazykitty says: Why is this news!? And I don't mean here, but every other website in the world! Not like she went all Britney on it! THAT'S when people should care!Avatar Imageyuelovesirius15 says: She looks different but still beautiful =) I'm glad she finally got a chance to do with her hair what she wanted. You look awesome Emma!Avatar ImageJustinbro says: i think she looked alot better with it longAvatar ImageJustinbro says: i think she looked alot better with it longAvatar ImageRavenclawZombie says: Aw, it looks cute! I liked her long hair better but good for her. Not caring about what other people think and just going for it feels pretty awesome. :DAvatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: this is depressing! i really don't like it! (picks up invisible phone) hello ellen de generes? what's that? you want your hair back? high five! nice!Avatar Imagestarfishes16 says: O_OAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: love it!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: My philosophy = Why care, it's just hair. It's grows back. In my opinion judging people based on their hair makes as little sense as judging people based on their skin color.Avatar ImageKristi Noelle says: Reminds me of Natalie Portman - her role in V for Vendetta. Actually, it doesn't look all that bad, although it shocked me; but I also agree with DeliaDee - is this really media-worthy?Avatar ImageFuran says: I think it's really pretty. :OAvatar ImageAveryfan says: People care because she's an icon for teenage girls, and teenage girls care about hair. Personally, when I first saw the picture I thought about two things: that iPhone4 commercial and Jennifer Jason Leigh/Bridget Fonda in Single White Female (esp the B/W shot). Maybe I just want to see Emma in a movie wielding a meat hook..Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Shes great! Shes still beautiful. But i liked her better with her long hair. Anyways she has the guts. Go on Emma You're awesome anytimeAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: Shes great! Shes still beautiful. But i liked her better with her long hair. Anyways she has the guts. Go on Emma You're awesome anytimeAvatar ImageAll Was Well says: I HATE THIS. WHERE IS EMMA? I WANT EMMA BACK. NOW.Avatar ImageSigmaKnight says: Just when you think she couldn't get any hotter, BAM!Avatar Imagemoondragon15 says: come on people! her hair will still grow back eventually! It actually looks nice. It's really cool for her to try new things. way to go emma!Avatar Imagesindie11 says: To each their own, but I liked her hair better long. I don't think she needed to go this extreme. I mean, it's so short!Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: I wish I could pull off a haircut like that!Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I think she looks absolutely stunning, but i'd think that even if she had a paper bag on her head! :)Avatar Imageworldstraveller says: she looks very good with the haircut, is rare girls and women who looks good with shortcutsAvatar ImageNotSoAwry says: She looks great, it really suits her.Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: Another reason she might've done this is to distance herself from the role of Hermione. I mean, she's had to sport the same hair for 10 years. One would think she was bursting to do something different with it. Anyway, I think it looks great!Avatar Imagezephy_stephy says: At first I was a little shocked. But I think she would look amazing with any sort of haircut.Avatar ImagePhoenix1946 says: The new 'do looks real nice. I wonder if she thought of donating the ponytail to "Locks of Love"? It's a non-profit organization that uses the hair to make wigs for those that have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.Avatar Imagehrrypttrfn328 says: Is it that slow of a news week? Wow. This is sad that people are discussing a haircut.Avatar ImageGinnyPotter88 says: I think its great that she doesnt look like Hermione anymore, since that roles over she can be recognised in other movies as Emma Watson not Hermione GrangerAvatar ImageLaithis says: That's when you know a woman is beautiful. Even when she does something as drastic as cutting her hair off, she still looks amazing. I applaud you Emma. Well done. You're breath taking.Avatar ImageMysterioMaximus says: I've never been too fond of short hair on women...not that I have anything against it. To each their own. It's just not particularly attractive to me. But who am I to talk? I'm the long-haired male, same spectrum, opposite side. I'm bias toward long hair. Avatar ImageJujuB213 says: Long hair is SO overrated. It takes moxie for women to go short. Emma looks absolutely gorgeous. Love it!Avatar Imagepotterfan4lyfe says: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why did she cut it?!?!?! i dont like it i mean she doesnt look THAT bad but i think she looks better with her normal hair :/Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: She looks nice.Avatar Imagevartika says: i liked her in hermoinie style only not like this i dont like her now Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: *WOW! SHOCKA!!* I think I like it, I just need to get a bit more used to it! Congrats, Emma for having the guts to do it! If you like it then, it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks, you're pretty enough to pull just about anything off! :D Avatar ImageNutsAboutHarry says: I think it looks foul!Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: Wow! I love that hair cut! It looks so beautiful!Avatar ImageJuleBule says: Why did she have to keep her hair the same way for a decade? Other actresses change their hair between films of the same series and they just use wigs and no one notices... Apart from that, I think it looks good on her but personally I liked her long hair better.Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: i do think i might like her hair longer.... but she is still stunning:) She's still the Emma we all know... a change of hair won't change the person.... we done for having the guts Emma:) xAvatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I suppose what makes it newsworthy is the fact that now ALL the filming must now be complete. For what it's worth, I think she looks pretty and modern. (Oh to be young!)Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: I think it looks cute, and I totally support her new 'do! I've been there, Girl, and it does feel good to make a change. :o)Avatar Imagewiltabone says: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Emma Why ? Long Hair = Better ;)Avatar ImageEvagirl says: SO happy she cut her hair, she looks awsome and as short haired girl I think people who prefer long hair on all girl are just saying they prefer for people to look loke everybody else. Way to go Emma, you look awsome and you deserve to change your hair for once.Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: I think she looks fantastic, kudos to her for doing what she really wanted and not playing it safe for the sake of all the people who are going, 'Nooooo!' It's her hair, and it looks fabulous! You look gorgeous Emma!!!Avatar Imagechanngalambeatrice says: That's an awesome haircut!Avatar Imagechanngalambeatrice says: What's wrong with the haircut? It's totally fab! If I were Emma, I'd like other to appreciate my new haircut! Besides, it is a cool haircut. Maybe you are so used to her Hermione-style haircut so you think it doesn't look right. I still think it is an aweso haircut.Avatar Imagechanngalambeatrice says: What’s wrong with the haircut? It’s totally fab! If I were Emma, I’d like other to appreciate my new haircut! Besides, it is a cool haircut. Maybe you are so used to her Hermione-style haircut so you think it doesn’t look right. I still think it is an awesome haircut.Avatar ImageLiara says: Ohhhh...NO!!!!! Her hair was enviable!!!!! :'( I'm so sad.... :'(Avatar Imagezoltan42 says: Especially from the picture, she looks a little like a cross between Twiggy and Mia Farrow in "Rosemary's Baby."Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW!! Emma it looks really nice on you!! and kind of modelish!!!! I actually did that once when I was 20 years old, my hair was below my bottom and I had it cut off in a pixie hair style, I donated my hair to lots of Love!!! and when I walked in my house my parents were speachless!!! they did not say that they did not like it, come to think of it they couldn't seem to form words for the shock!!! I have had it cut a different times since then, but never that short again!!! lolAvatar ImageNatalie says: I love cutting my hair and I adore changes!!!! But!..................I don't like this Twiggy thing on her. I loved her long hair..this...not so much... Not that my opinion matters anyway..Avatar ImageHydrus says: Wow! She looks fantastic! Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Ms. Watson was a nice-looking young woman before, but this radical new move just raised her image by a factor of 100 - she looks older, more sophisticated and really, really striking now. She has just what it takes to pull off this look: beautiful eyes, small ears and fine facial bone structure. (How many boys have that? And yet most nowadays wear their hair institutionally short, yuck!) All of these assets were somewhat obscured by her old cloud of hair. Brava, Emma! I think this haircut should now be dubbed the Fawkes, since it represents Emma rising from the ashes of her previous life!Avatar ImageOh Neville says: Looks great, Emma. Cheers! Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: I like that Emma was going for a new look, but the haircut is a bit shorter than I tend to like. I would expect her to do more of a bob. Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: The haircut works for her, but it makes me sad because it reminds me of how she is done doing Hermione. :(Avatar Imagemolly43 says: I love it. You look really great. It must be a great relief to finally do your hair the way you want. With each of my pregnancies after months of not being able to lay on my stomach it was a great relief to beable to after the baby was born. Avatar ImageIloveDobby says: I like it :)Avatar ImageWisconsin956715 says: i dont like itAvatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Wow, that does look different on her.....but the look doesn't seem that bad...Avatar Imageblackhawks88 says: awful!!!!!!!!!! boooooooooooooooo! I don't likeAvatar ImagePetra says: She reminds me of Mia Wasikowska now... :) If she likes it, who are we to judge??Avatar ImageFresca says: I think that the short haircut makes Emma look more mature, and really brings out the structure of her face and her beautiful eyes. I bet the guys likje the long hair thing, but the ladies will understand why she went to shorter hair.Avatar Imageagentzac says: Well I like it! Good for you Emma!Avatar ImageEeyore says: I'm amazed she cut it that short, but it looks great on her. She has beautiful eyes and the shorter hair really shows them. As someone who had long hair that tended to be Hermione bushy, I felt the same way when I cut my hair. I got the "oh, I loved your long hair!" Well, so did I, but it gave me headaches, it was hot in summer and took a long time to style. A friend who also had long thick hair, cut it short, put it in a paper bag and handed it to her boyfriend, saying, "Here, you like it so much, you can have it." I don't think he was amused, but I knew exactly how she felt. Good for Emma! She looks terrific, whether her hair is long or short. And what the heck, short hair can be grown long again if she changes her mind. But she's right, cutting your long hair is very liberating.Avatar ImageRemusRox says: It's her hair, she can do what she wants to. And she's right, she didn't get to step out and do random stuff yet. I'm sure everyone of us can look back and remember doing something refreshingly independent. Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: Now we know who''ll play Twiggy when they do her story. Just make the eyes a little bigger.Avatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: She's gorgeous no matter what!Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: i was surprised when i heard about it, but then i saw the picture & said SHE'S SO PRETTY SHE CAN TOTALLY PULL IT OFF!! she can do anything really.Avatar ImageXyra44 says: She looks stunning! She's right about not being able to change her hair around like normal teens do. It's kind of bittersweet as she (as well as the others) are now free to move outside the world of Harry Potter and the characters they brought to life for us. I wonder what Burberry thinks?Avatar ImageXyra44 says: Oh, so glad I'm not the only one who thought she resembled Twiggy. :) Thanks jeannemclROAR.Avatar Imagesiena says: Eeyore, your friend rocks !! As for Emma - she looks absolutely gorgeous !! As someone said before, the new cut totally brings out her lovely face and eyes !! Amazing !! Well done, Emma !! Avatar Imagehermionenluna TZS ROAR! says: i agree with blackhawks88. what happened to the gorgeous hermione we knew? the new haircut just isnt my style. :'(Avatar Imagecoolerthansnowcones says: i dnt like it at alll.i miss the lng hair.Avatar ImageDDWatson says: I prefered her with her long beautiful locks, but its Emma! and she always looks wonderful, so just as long as she likes it :DAvatar ImageScylla says: Oooh!! I'm so happy for her. She looks great.Avatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: I think i'm a little reluctant to accept it because I did something similar to Emma where I just got about 12 inches of hair cut off, it was a lot shorter than I was used to and the stylist just kind of messed it up so now I'm never cutting it short again. I have to admit it looks good on her, though.Avatar ImageHerzeY says: I think she´s pretty. When I see her i was shoked and scared but now I think she is nice. She looks so elegantAvatar Imagecauldronbum says: i liked it how it was but she could have made it much worst! But shes soo pretty she can pull anything off! lucky thing :P Avatar Imagecritterfur says: Wow...120 or so comments on Ms. Watson's haircut, and I guess I'm going to add to the mess. I believe Emma is beautiful no matter what, and that it's perfectly fine for a person to experiment with cutting their hair, dyeing it, shaving it off completely, growing it down to their toes, whatever floats your boat. There are indeed a number of up-and-coming actresses who have decided to go for the pixie-cut (Mia Wasikowska, Carey Mulligan, etc) so Emma isn't alone. This all reminds me a bit of the uproar over Keri Russell cutting her hair in the 2nd Season of Felicity, and how that one little act was blamed for plummeting ratings and the cancellation of the show. Avatar Imagehermy007 says: holy crap! i leave my labtop for a couple of days and this is what happens? i was really shocked at first at this haircut, but now i think she looks really nice! kudos to her!Avatar ImageFigment says: I really like it, it works well with her face.Avatar ImageFigment says: I really like it, it works well with her face.Avatar ImageToNkS_rip says: NOOOOOOOOOOOO. what did she do?????Avatar Imagejonk69 says: I love it! She can really rock the short hair. And I love the fact that she is basically like "Screw it, the movies are over, so I can do what I want". I just wish people would stop being like "Ewww grow it back Emma!", if I were her, I would be like "it is my head, leave me alone!"Avatar Imagemystiqueminx says: this look is just OK ,,, she looked great with long hairAvatar ImageGloria says: Oh God!!! NOW I know that it's all over... *weeps*. Emma always looks beautiful no matter how she wears her hair.Avatar Imagemy_dogs_servant says: i LOVE it! i think it's a great way to grow out of her role as Hermione and become more of an adult without become another Britney spears or Lindsey Lohan. i think it's a great move! :-)Avatar ImageReader511 says: I thought the short haircut would grow on me after a day or so, but it has not. Emma looks terrible with her hair this short. She looks either like a boy or, worse, like she is sick.Avatar Imagesessionka says: Hope they don't have to do any re-shoots of DH!!!Avatar ImageArmill says: my wife and i love the new look. we think it looks adorable. but what matters is that she likes it. so more power to her for finding something comfortable her herself. and it will be easier for her to take care of lol.Avatar Imagemoonysmusician says: Very nice! She looks beautiful with any hairstyle. :-)Avatar Imagesirius17 says: still looks good but im not digging it but hey whatever floats your boat. if she likes it thats all that mattersAvatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: i can't believe some people don't like this. she looks totally hot.Avatar Imagetreacletartftw says: I think it looks different. She looks very refined with it in my opinion. It shows that she doesn't need her long hair to define her as beautiful because she looks great with it short. =]Avatar ImageAveryfan says: LOL To all those devastated by this turn of events... If you close your eyes and wish and wish and wish hard enough, Emma's hair will actually grow longer. However... She may trim it again later.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Nice look,Emma!Avatar Imagejessyginny says: OMFG NOOOOO WAAAY!!!!!!!!!!! How the hell could she do so, her beautiful hair *starts to cry* Her new hairstyle looks AWFUL, I really hate it! Some people fits in short hair, some in long hair and some in both. Emma ONLY fits in long hair! I´m so angry and sad right now, I mean she has always been like my biggest idol and I´ve always loved her hair! How could you do such a terrible thing to us, it looks awful Emma! Please get back your beautiful hair, please!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: @Averyfan, LOL!Avatar Imagelunatic_2 says: OMG!! Emma! What did you do to your hair?! I don't so much like it. It's going to take me a long while to get used to it.Avatar Imagestrife19 says: she looks best when her hair is long.. but she still looks stunning sporting a short hair.. :)Avatar ImageAnnieFalls says: Ah she looks great. I did not expect this but its kinda awesome. i hope she donated her hair. Some lucky girl could have Hermione's hair as a wig. Ah.Avatar ImageLions4thecup says: I think it's cute on her. I wouldn't have the guts to cut all my hair off at once! It's nice that she's stepped out of the Hermione-ish look. Also it reminds me that she really isn't Hermione, which is kinda a good thing. Cool hairstyle, anyway.Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: Of shut it people who say she looks horrible, she looks gorgeous still and she wanted to do it, so get over it. Good for her, she's beautiful. Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: kewlAvatar Imageblessi says: Whatever haircuts you have, you still beautiful!. I'm proud of you of doing that, we have the same hair a bit. hehe :)) I Love it. Avatar ImageBradyboy says: It's really not as big as people are making it. Personally I'm more of her longer hair than shorter, but that's just my preference in women. Nothing wrong with short hair though. If Emma likes it and makes her feel liberated then I'm happy for her! Avatar ImageGinevras says: I really like the haircut. It is a shame that Emma is going to be judged over a simple haircut. After all, it's her choice but everyone is entitled to their opinion.Avatar Imagedevilskinn says: I think she looks good no matter what, even though it's even harder to be pretty with short hair, so she's just amazing for that! I simply admire girls who can wear long, medium and short hair-styles, and envy them just a bit :-pAvatar ImageAirallia says: It's ok for me and if I didn't know who she was (though I'd probably recognise her) I'd say yeah I like it. But she was better with longer hair, I think. Anyway, I find her quite brave 'cause not everyone is brave enough to say:"Yeah cut it all off, well most of it!". So I admire her courage.Avatar ImageMakoRain says: Good for her, finally getting the hair cut she wants. But... really.... Do they need to post an article about someone getting a hair cut?Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: Woah! She's looks adorable!!! I loved her old hair but i love her new cut!!!!!!! It IS a little suprizing but amazing!! way to go Emma!Avatar Imagehewy says: You go girl!! You look great!!!!Avatar ImageLeper says: Ooh! She looks very pretty.Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Wow is all i can say. Avatar ImageIndigoMisfit says: Lol, I know how she feels. I did the same thing was I quit synchronized swimming. Cut all my hair right off, because I was so sick of having the same style for 8 years. Way to go Emma!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: WHY???? I dont totally hate it but Emma looked worlds better with longer hair. She doesn't look like her anymore. :(Avatar ImageHogwartsChicka13 says: i love it!!!!! it really makes her eyes stick out! i love her hair long to, but this is a good change!! i noramally dont like that short of hair on girls, bc to me it normally just looks too short,but she can actually make it look cute! i dont think id ever be brave enough to cut mine that short, but since she can more power to her! i really like, its a good change:) oh and all those people who are hating on it just bc its not like hermione, well, she isnt her hermione she just PLAYS her in the movies! its her hair, let her do what she wants with it!!!:)Avatar ImageTheWaiter says: I think she looks beautiful ! I would never have the guts to cut my hair like that ! I would like something bobbish, but pixy haircut, Let's face it. I'm a wimp !Avatar ImageEmmaria says: she's still looking gorguos;she had long hair when she was filming harry potter 2001and maybe she felt that she's hermione not emma!!!!!!! and maybe she'll regrow her hair again so that it'll grow in a better way!!!!!! :0 :))Avatar Imagecarlahp says: I can understand why she has done it. After all, she has had to have the same hairstyle for practically half her life and all of her teen years. Of course she wants a change. It looks nice, but I think I prefer the long hair, but it's probably because I'm not used to it.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: i liked her long hair this make me sad a little bit..... :(Avatar ImageJaeliaVerdette says: you guys have to remember that she couldn't do ANYTHING she wanted to her hair for a WHOLE FREAKING DECADE!!! Harry Potter basically took over her life and I think she missed so many opportunities that "normal" teens have that she just really wanted to catch up on them now. I don't think it should be that big of a deal but she still looks amazing.Avatar ImageMeggie the Goose says: Very different from the Hermione look, but cute! Wonder what she'll do next...Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Ah to each their own, she still looks gorgeous and if she's happy which she seems to be I'm all for it. Plus it shows her versatilityAvatar Imageslugclub says: Emma pulled it off. It looks good, just as great as her longer hair!Avatar Image9em says: I'm glad she got the hair cut she wanted. I have really short hair, and I love it. She looks amazing!Avatar Imagequidditchluver says: I agree with blackhawks88. I'm glad that she's liking it. but to be honest, i thought she looked WAY better with longer hair. good luck emma!Avatar Imageblackhair says: @DeliaDee i agree i don't think this required to be mentioned in Leaky at all. So i don't think i should comment on itAvatar Imageronrules says: When I saw it at first I thought, 'Oh Love, what have you done?!' However, she's still the same Emma we all love so, get over it. It's hair, it WILL grow back. (If she allows it, of course).Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: She looks great in that haircut!:DAvatar Imagemillsashley09 says: It's a big change, but she still looks gorgeous!Avatar ImageFifi says: First, I know it's not such a big deal but look how many comments there are. Anyway we'd hardly know Emma if Leaky didn't tell us. Secondly, I like the haircut even though it made me look a few times at first though and I'm glad she's so happy with it. :DAvatar ImageSmokinLouie says: What trouble I could get in with her!Avatar ImageSproutMdme says: Adorable! You look like Twiggy from the 1960s!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: She's been 'pixillated'!!!Avatar ImageMarie-Caroline says: This really suits her :) but seriously, a whole article devoted to her hair cut? ah well, it's there to entertain us I guess ^^Avatar Imagejacket says: I think it looks great! Altough I do miss her long hair...it was so pretty...Avatar Imageminiginny says: She looks good... but I just cut my hair short and three weeks later I regretted it. I miss her long hair too. it was really pretty! I can hardly recognize her, but if it's what she likes...Avatar Imagestregs12 says: wow she still looks amazingly beautiful!Avatar Imageevb615 says: What did she do!!!??? she killed the spirit of HArry POtter!!! she is no longer Hermione! this is bad!! rlly bad!! she doesnt care nemore about harry potter! she is no longer my favorite actor in Harry Potter....Rupert Grint is and so is Evanna Lynch!Avatar ImageFarahey Sama Kabir says: I don't want to be mean but she doesn't look that good. But its ok it'll grow back.Avatar Imageluvgood84 says: It (proper) freaked me out at first but its growing on me I suppose. Not much we can do now is it. :|
