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.”
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.
