We’re not known for our style or fashion coverage here at Hero Complex — we roam a landscape where Klingon boots are acceptable and wearing a Batman cape is fine after Labor Day. But we do keep track of the Muggle Nation and all-things-“Potter,” so here’s a look at Emma Watson’s newly shorn hair, which makes for a big departure from her decade of Hermione curls.

Updated: And here’s some special guest commentary from All the Rage blogger Melissa Magsaysay…
“While the gamine crop is a drastic change from her long, honey colored locks, Watson is just one of many young actresses who’ve been cutting their hair lately. Carey Mulligan and Mia Wasikowska are sporting pixie short hair and like Watson, channeling Mia Farrow in “Rosemary’s Baby” or Jean Seberg in “Breathless.” The style is a refreshing change from the over processed pop star extensions that seem to be handed out along with a shiny set of veneers, to up and coming starlets the second they land in Hollywood. Watson’s new ‘do signifies the major changes in her life (she’s a full-time college student at Brown) and shows the world she’s no longer the little girl sporting bouncy “Harry Potter” hair, but a grown up and more sophisticated actress who wants to be taken seriously.”
And we now return to our regular unfashionable blog…
