Pixie Cut

Heads turned and cameras flashed when Harry Potter's Emma Watson stepped onto the red carpet sans her familiar long, wavy hair. Her new short pixie cut sent a clear message: "Goodbye, Hermione -- hello, world!"Today our ghd stylers blog will share you how to create Emma Watson`s short pixie cut.

"Every couple of years, a celebrity takes the plunge and goes for a crop," says New York-based hairstylist Greg Ruggeri. (Think Mia Farrow, Michelle Williams, Cate Blanchett and Ginnifer Goodwin.)

Watson timed her new style to coincide with the end of her movie series and the beginning of college. "It's a great transition to being a young woman, and I'm sure it will help her career-wise," says Dublin-bred hair stylist Lydia O'Carroll, stylist to supermodels like Kate Moss, Christie Brinkley and Cindy Crawford.

Ruggeri reports that more of his clients are following Watson's lead and going short, either as a dramatic change or as a remedy for over-processed hair color or unruly extensions. Thinking of taking the plunge yourself, but not sure if you can pull off the look? Here's how to make a pixie cut work for you.

1. Go short for the right reason

A short haircut is often used to mark a milestone or life change -- like Watson's transition from girl wizard to young fashion pinup. "Sometimes when you experience loss of love, a career change or issues with family and friends, you want to do something to mark that particular occasion -- or possibly to escape it," says Ruggeri.

Before you reach for the scissors, though, make sure you're not acting out of impulse and that you're ready to commit to a dramatic new look. Ruggeri advises talking to an expert about what short style is right for you, whether it's a true pixie cut or something less dramatic. "Research the kind of haircuts that you admire, then show them to your stylist and they'll point you in the right direction."

2. Look at your face shape

If you haven't gone short in a while, O'Carroll suggests doing it gradually. Have your stylist cut off a few inches and wear it that way for a couple of weeks, then take off a little more.

Before going for a truly short haircut, keep a few things in mind. "Most women have the ability to wear short hair -- the solution is to fine-tune the desired style to suit the face shape," Ruggeri says. Keep these pointers in mind if you have:

  • A round face: Try adding length and texture to the sides of your pixie cut.
  • A wide forehead: Leave your bangs on the longer side, like Ashlee Simpson's impish 'do (see top inset).
  • A diamond-shape face: Have wide cheekbones and narrow forehead and jaw? Go for it! "You can wear anything," says Ruggeri.
  • Large features: O'Carroll cautions that super-short cuts may not be the most flattering for you. You're better off staying closer to chin-length.
