Emma Watson recently emerged as the face of the famous fashion house’s new fragrance, Prada Paradox.
As well as appearing in the campaign, the Harry Potter actor made his directorial debut with a short film described as “a celebration of what it means to be a living paradox.”
Between her ’60s-themed fashion and barely-applied makeup, Emma’s choppy hair has been the talk of the town, and it’s not for the first time.
The 32-year-old revived her iconic pixie cut in dark brown tones with face-framing locks and shimmery micro-bangs.
It’s been over 10 years since Emma Watson first welcomed Wonder to Wonderland. He felt sexy too.
It definitely accentuates her bone structure and fine features to complete her look, but is this a look that anyone can pull off?
Not according to Laura Elliott, director of education at Neal & Wolf.
he says the following: It all depends on the shape of your face. We find that a more oval face shape is ideal for this type of cut.
All is not lost, though, as even those who find this short style unnaturally unsuitable can switch to their own style.
“If your face is a bit round, softening areas like the brow bones can give it a more ‘exaggerated’ look,” says Laura.
“Or, if you prefer a more alternative look, you can remove part of the undercut to add texture and ‘wisdom,’ giving the style a sharper, more defined look.
Emma opted for a more grown-up version of her previous pixie. It features blunt bangs, bangs around the ears, and a textured top that adds a little edge.
If you want to try it out, you should first consider whether it can handle a drastic change in your appearance, especially if you have long hair.
Use your photo app to get an idea of what your cut will look like, and consider how you’ll trim and style it as you grow. Hair grows an average of 0.5 inches per month. Therefore, planning ahead can help you avoid the tricky stages in the middle.
“For short hairstyles, I love Neil & Wolf’s Shape Flexible Paste, Dry Texture Finishing Spray, and Flexible Styling Spray. These products add the hold and texture your style needs.”
The delicate pixie cut also pairs well with accessories like clips and bands, especially when adding color and shine.
Always take inspiration photos in the salon so your hairdresser understands your vision, and don’t be afraid to ask their opinion on what looks best on you.
I can’t promise you’ll look like Emma Watson, but I hope you feel as bold, strong, and sexy as her style.
