Emma Watson Makes 'Mom Cut' Cool With Her Coveted Hairstyle


emma watson hairHere I thought long hair was it. The hair to have. I see women with long hair all over magazines, catalogs, on the runways, and I find long hairs all over my apartment because I seem to be shedding. So I was sort of shocked to find out that a short pixie hairstyle -- specifically Emma Watson's hair -- is the most influential haircut of 2011. Justin Bieber got the honor for the guys, but we won't get into that just yet.

Watson is 21-years-old. Young. Beautiful. She's not yet a mom. But this haircut ... it's one you can totally call a mom haircut. It's short, seems easy to style, is out of the way of kid's grabby hands. And we all know mom haircuts are spoken about with that low voice and out of the side of the mouth. Like she's a mom now and she got this awful mom haircut. GASP!

But the Harry Potter star is helping moms seem even cooler than all of us moms already know we are. She's single-hair-dedly helping with our cool mom-ification cred.

Look, I'm not about to go out and trim off 12 inches to get this look or anything because I think I would look absolutely dreadful with this kind of 'do, so my probably way too long, all falling out hairs are staying to decorate my floors. But I am all about some mom pride. Moms are cool people too, you know ... er ... little Mister or Miss twenty-something whippersnapper who thinks we are all lame. We have tattoos. We're redefining what mom jeans are. Some of us even enjoy a beer or two once in a while. We are human beings, you know. We have feelings. And our feelings aren't snipped away when we cut our hair short. Nor is it uncool to have short hair.

Thank you Emma!

Now let's talk about Justin for a second. Isn't his hairstyle just about the same as Emma's?

With a little gel, it would be. I bet even women were getting this look. But it's certainly better to say Make me look like Emma Watson than Make me look like Justin Bieber. Especially for a mom. Now that would be weird.

What do you think of Emma Watson's hair? Would you get this haircut? Do you think she's helping make 'mom hair' cool?

I love this hair cut on Emma Watson I wish I could pull a style like that off but with my curls like I would look more like little orphan Annie! Lol!

It looks good on HER, but it's one of those haircuts that if you don't have the right hair texture or a live-in hairstylist, it's gonna make you look like dump.
I would look like a crazy with this cut, but I have a stubborn wave in my hair! (I risk the crazy look with long hair, too!)

I had almost exactly Emma's cut at age 20 after cutting off over a foot and a half of hair. But, my hair is curly, so it only looked like hers after a very careful straightening. I never got why people associate short hair with moms. I used to have super long hair, but with how thick and curly it is, it was easier (and cheaper) to keep it short -especially when I was sharing a communal bathroom with a whole floor of people who probably didn't appreciate my long showers and unavoidable stray hairs polluting the floors.

I had short hair growing up. What I've learned is pixie cuts on look good on pixie type women. The small cute types I have big features and am pushing 6ft. so it never looked right on me. So cute on Emma though.

I wouldn't consider that to be a "mom" haircut. What an odd thing to say. I think she looks young and stylish and I wish I could pull off a similar look.

I really don't think most people immediately assocate short hair on females with having a "mom haircut".

My mom style is a ponytail. Way easier to take care of than this, and looks fine on any face shape.

I guess I'll be the odd one here and say I hate it. It's ugly.

She is so beautiful, but unfortunately I have a round face shape and it would look awful on me.

this hair cut makes her look like a (i'm boring and have given up on myself) middle aged mom instead of the cute young woman that she is...ugh :-(
