In our last entry we discussed a couple famous starlets who traded in their long locks for surprisingly short dos, but they aren’t the only ones who have made a drastic change with their hair. Plenty of actors and actresses have dramatically changed their hair either for film roles or simply personal taste. Sometimes they have to wear long wigs for their next projects, other times they’ll use short wigs to avoid cutting their hair in the first place. Here’s a couple other famous hair change-ups.
- Michelle Williams: Though originally known for the small town girl-next-door Jen Lindley in Dawson’s Creek, Michelle Williams followed her television fame to film roles as diverse as the meta-black comedy Synecdoche, New York, the Oscar-winning drama Brokeback Mountain, the avant garde western Meek’s Cutoff and the blockbuster family fantasy Oz: The Great and Powerful. If that wasn’t enough of an image change, Williams also dropped her Heartland-style golden locks for a short pixie cut, cutting any and all ties to her small screen persona.
- Emma Watson: Like many child actors, Emma Watson spent most of her adolescence intrinsically tied to her first major role. In her case, it was Harry Potter’s friend and confidante Hermione Granger in the decade-spanning Harry Potter series. Today, however, Watson has blossomed into a veritable fashion icon, complete with a hip and trendsetting style and an extra short haircut to match.
