Some Cutting Remarks

2

Emma Watson has the world at her feet. She is beautiful, young, and talented. She has access to the most prestigious and talented stylists, make-up artists, and hairstylists in the world. Yet she turned up to the Oscars, the most important showbiz event of the year, with a hairstyle that screamed “I just came from the gym and forgot to shower.

Emma Watson

No Emma Watson. No. You can do better. We all know you can do better than a hairstyle that somehow makes you look like you’ve borrowed your dad’s toupee, and then forgotten to wash said toupee.

It’s a misstep for the usually flawless Watson, which makes it all the more egregious. If Lindsay Lohan had turned up this hairstyle, I wouldn’t have batted an eye. But this is Emma Watson, and the event was the Academy Awards. If I’m perfectly honest, I expected more.

Looking at the other celebrity attendee’s hairstyles just made the contrast more stark. One example was Kerry Washington, whose shiny shoulder-length hair showed us all just what a relaxed and informal Oscar hairstyle should look like. Pity Emma Watson didn’t get the memo.
