From Harry Potter
To Pixie Chick

The kids turned young adults of Harry Potter are bringing the wildly popular JK Rowling franchise to an end and some are shedding more than their onscreen identities that made them famous. Take a look at star Emma Watson's brand new -- and very different -- pixie haircut!

Emma Watson haircut

It makes sense that Emma Watson would want to be known for more than her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies. She's heading into her sophomore year at Brown University and has been taking on more of an adult attitude.

So what did she do to let go of the Hermione Granger image after wrapping the movie's final Harry Potter film? Why, she chopped off those famous wavy locks, of course.

Emma Watson displayed a new pixie cut on her Facebook page. The star posted a picture as well as a blurb about the new haircut. "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," Watson wrote. "It's the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like. Big love from Emma."

Emma Watson told, "The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out. It felt amazing. I love it."

Rodney Cutler of the Cutler Salon in New York is responsible for Watson's close cut.

"I missed all the experimentations teenagers go through," Watson added. "I've wanted to do this since I was about 16, so as soon as I had the chance I was like: Right. This is it."

Fans can see one last glimpse of Emma Watson's famous waves as she reprises her role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 1, which hits theaters November 19. Part 2 is due out next summer.

Tell SheKnows what you think of Emma Watson's new cut. Is it pixie perfect or pretty potent? You be the judge.

To the comment above by someone named Bud. What does hair length have to do with either femininity or masculinity? While you have every right to your opinion, you might try opening your mind just a little. Hair length has nothing to do with how feminine or masculine a person is. Her haircut is adorable and her business. (I never respond to these posts, but comments from the dark ages really get me going!)

I don't really care for her new "look", but I love her Deathly Hallows' syles better.

You cant really change a lot about your physically without costing you a lot of money. A hair cut is not that radical, but is highly effective.

its he decision so let her be!

Jordann November 28, 2010 | 2:32 PM

her hair was so pretty :( i hope she lets it grow out again

kiersten swaak November 27, 2010 | 4:18 PM

i can't imagine why on earth she would chop all her hair off! she looked sooo much more beautiful with her old hair. now she looks like a boy, bad move. :/

bud November 25, 2010 | 5:10 PM

I can only hope she did that for an upcomming movie. That move shaved 90% off her beautiful femininity!

SHE LOOKS LIKE A BOY NOW LIKE THE SUITE LIFE OF ZACK & CODY'S TWIN BOYS also with the tiny boobs that makes the suspicion even strong wonder when she's getting the gene change as well!

Maggie November 20, 2010 | 8:31 AM

I'm not sure i like it but whatever she likes is fine with me. The long hair fitted her better but the short hair does make her look older.

Hanna&Ify November 19, 2010 | 9:12 AM

Why would she cut her hair THAT short? It looks WAY better long. :(

Faye November 18, 2010 | 7:06 PM

This really shocked me at first, but I think it still looks cute. I think she might have done better with keeping it longer or turning it into a bob, but I think it makes her face really stand out.

good good and good!
