Makes sense, the 20-year-old has finished filming the last of the Potter films and doesn't have to maintain her long locks for the role. Of course, Kristen Stewart chopped off her hair for The Runaways and had to wear a wig to portray Bella Swan in Eclipse.
We're split here in the JSYK office over what we think of the look. But Emma, who made the drastic change a few days ago, has formed her official opinion.
"I love it- feels incredible," she tweeted on Thursday. "Hope you like it!"
We do! It's a bold move, but Emma pulls it off... at least in this photo. And it's not the first time she's experimented with different looks as evidenced in the photos below. What we're really wondering is if she'll keep it short for all the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows press appearances and the premiere in November or if it's just a way to beat the intense east coast summer heat.

Another reason the haircut is a good move for Emma is that it's easy to manage. We're not sure if she'll be headed back to Brown to continue her studies in the fall, or if she'll take some time off to promote Part 1 of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,' but with all the media appearances and her clothing line, she has a lot on her plate. A no-fuss haircut is sure to cut down the morning beauty routine. Think you know Emma? Take our quiz and find out how much you really know about her.
