Emma Watson’s crop led to ‘re-birth’

Emma Watson's hairstylist says cutting off the star's long locks was a "re-birth" for the beauty.

The 23-year-old actress rose to international fame thanks to her role as Hermione Granger in the hugely successful Harry Potter film franchise.

After starring in the films from such a young age, Emma chopped off her long locks towards the end of shooting the final instalment - which her hair stylist Isabel Guillen thinks was the best beauty move possible.

"I do agree – sometimes a big change gives a rebirth; Emma’s pixie cut was absolutely a rebirth for her. She beautifully jumped from Harry Potter right into womanhood," she told Beauty High when asked if it was good for Emma's career.

Isabel also revealed which direction she'd love to see Emma go with her tresses next.

The hair professional thinks the style icon should stick to short, edgy crops from now on, although knows the beauty will look fabulous whatever the length of her hair.

"I love Emma Watson no matter the style, but I will say the shorter, the better," she said.

"It makes her more of an interesting young woman than she already is. No matter what she decides on, she’ll absolutely rock it!"

Isabel explained how people can take ideas from Emma's ever on-trend style.

"The inspiration should be about change and what makes you look and feel more fabulous that you already are! Taking Emma’s inspiration, see what’s most flattering on your face shape, hair texture, density, etc," she advised.

"Try a soft side-swept bang, it’s not too drastic and it makes a statement. Layers tend to bring a lot of freedom and movement into a style, just like Emma’s fun pixie hairstyle. If you have long hair, bring it up a notch. It’ll automatically bring more fullness and a healthier, lighter look and feel to it. If you’re the type of girl who likes to experiment, Emma’s longer version of a more graduated bob is ideal for you. Have fun with your locks!"
