We Need To Talk About Emma Watson's Hair

Just look at it.

Posted on

As we know, Emma Watson is a superstar on every level.

Her feminism, her activism, her acting – they're all exceptional and inspiring.

Her feminism, her activism, her acting – they're all exceptional and inspiring.

But also: her hair.

And just to clarify for anyone anyone who might be confused: Although we are about to discuss at length a superficial aspect of Emma Watson – her beautiful hair – that does not mean that Emma Watson or indeed all women are superficial. Being a beautiful female actor with great hair and being smart as hell are not mutually exclusive.

OK, now we've got that straight, let's get back to business.

Emma Watson's hair is going to destroy us all because it's just so bloody good.

LOOK AT IT. Look at the goldeny strands, and the not-quite-straight centre parting. Good grief, such hair.

Emma's always had strong hair game. Her 2010 pixie cut knocked us all to the ground.

But then last December she unveiled her bob. And it was perfect.

Emma wtf, come on, stop it. But also don't stop, it's amazing.

It's the bob to end all bobs.

A bob of such magnificence it puts all other bobs to shame.

It's an in-betweeny length, not quite to the shoulders, just below the chin. Dark brown, but also golden. It's neither one thing or the other, but it's everything.

Emma how. Why. How. What. Emma, your hair.

Since then, Emma has been showing us exactly what a bob is meant to be. Here she is on International Women's Day.

Here she demonstrates the power of her bob scooped up into a cute lil' bun. Also note: The feathery, half-there fringe. Neither one thing or the other, but everything.

For another day: an important discussion about this specific shade of red lipstick.

Emma's bob is so good it leaves a question mark hanging over all other hair lengths.
