Emma Watson Wants Longer Hair for Movie Roles

In August last year, as a sign that she was done with the “Harry Potter” franchise, British actress Emma Watson cut her long hair and went for a cute pixie ‘do. Now, she’s saying she’s done experimenting – and wants her locks back.

As we also noted at the time, Emma wanted to try a shorter ‘do because, given her contract for “Harry Potter,” she was not allowed to do so at the age when all the other girls experiment with their look.

So, as a sign of rebellion if you will, she went and cut all her hair.

However, now that the moment has gone, she realizes this is a look that will not help her career, as she says in a recent interview with People magazine.

The other day, Emma was the Elle Style Awards 2011, rocking a slicked back, short ‘do. Asked whether she planned on keeping her hair short for that much longer, she revealed she couldn’t even if she wanted to.

“At the ELLE Style Awards in London last night, where Watson received the Style Icon award from Vivienne Westwood, the starlet revealed to reporters that she’s liking her extra length,” People writes.

However, Emma plans on going about this the natural way – that is, without extensions, weaves and wigs. She’ll simply grow out her hair no matter how much time it takes.

“I am trying to grow it but it’s slow, it’s taking a while obviously. If I want to keep acting then it’s more flexible for me to have it longer for different roles, it’s quite a specific cut. I’m kind of looking forward to getting to a cute little bob stage,” the actress revealed at the ceremony.

As noted above, when she cut her hair, Emma described the moment as “liberating” because, for once in many, many years, she could do what she wanted with it without having to think about how that would impact the Hermione part in the “Harry Potter” franchise.
