Hair today, gone tomorrow! In what seemed like one flick of her wizard’s wand, Harry Potter star Emma Watson said a swift goodbye to her luxurious chestnut locks and hello to a dramatic new pixie haircut. “The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out,” the newly shorn starlet tells about her visit to New York stylist Rodney Cutler. “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.'” That chance presented itself when, after more than a decade, filming for the blockbuster Harry Potter movie series finally wrapped and put to rest Watson’s charming Hermione Granger character and the unruly hair she had to have to play the part. “I missed all that experimentation that most teenagers go through.” Making up for the years in inches, this teen doesn’t have any regrets. “It was the most liberating thing!…I love it.” Tell us: What do you think of Emma Watson’s new do?
