“Oh my God, it was the most liberating thing! The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out. It felt amazing. I love it … I missed all that experimentation that most teenagers go through. I’ve wanted to do this since I was about 16, so as soon as I had the chance I was like, ‘Right. This is it.’”

Emma Watson on her chic new pixie cut, a change she was finally able to make after years of playing long-haired Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” movies. I certainly know the power that comes from lopping off more than a few inches, only I chopped my long hair after a breakup. What has compelled you to make a drastic change to your hair? [EW]
