The Long and Short of Celebrity Hair (PHOTOS)

Emma Watson ignited a firestorm of controversy this week when she debuted her dramatically short new hairdo. Many wondered: Was it too tomboy-ish? Is it for a new role? What will this mean for America's still-fragile economic recovery?

But Watson is far from the first show-biz babe to switch things up by chopping most of her hair off. Click through our photo gallery to see Watson's scissors-happy predecessors and let us know in the comments: Do you like them better long and flowing, or short and choppy?

    Definitely long! She looks like a boy with the short hair.

    Rihanna is very beautiful but I think she should leave her hair shoulder length. Right about the shoulder would look great on her!

    I don't think this girl is attractive but she definitely looks better with long hair. The short hair is unevenly cut and it looks like a mistake!

    Angelina said Shiloh wants to be a tomboy and get a haircut and dress like a boy.honestly? i dont think a 4 year old girl knows what she wants. sure she might prefer to play with cars instead of dolls but you dress her however you wanna.so i think to her pretty face long hair goes better. because shes a GIRL. I'm guessing youre a homophobe too.

    i have a 3 yr old and she definatly knows what she wants.dress the child however they want. its prob just a faze and its only clothes. i read that around the time of ww2 pink was actually for the boys and blue for the girls. but it became the other way round after the war. I totally agree cuz at that age, I remember how I wanted to dress and would fight with my mom over what I wanted to wear vs what she wanted me to wear.

    I love the long, but Michelle is my girl thu and thu! Ever since I saw her on Dawson's Creek and Halloween H20 when she was just a beautiful teen girl to the unstoppably amazing actress she's become with Brokeback Mountain and If these Walls Could Talk 2 (among many others) I knew she was special! And her beauty doesnt lie! She looks great either way! And also we share the same exact b-day (year and day!)

    I'm gonna have to agree on the ghetto clown thing with the right pic. I love Rhirhi but I HATE the 80's clown look. And to Zac, just because you don't agree doesnt make someone a jackass!

    She looks like a 12 yr old! Not a 25yr old.. wow. But I had to look up who she was.. didnt know before then.

    Some girls / women stand out with short hair, it sets them apart from the thousands of wannabees and shows their beauty. Halle is one of them (Natalie Portman another).

    When you're that beautiful, you can pull off any haircut. She managed to make that weird Star Wars hair piece with red dots on her cheeks looks regal, for heaven's sake!

    Hard to look good when you have a long needle nose like that. Having said that, the short cut and color are hideous and the boring middle part on the brown hair only emphasizes her long nose.

    She is really pretty. Too bad that bad black color is on her hair. I don't mind the hairstyle too much just the color. She looks good with brown hair or red hair. Not liking the black so much. Why is she changing her hair color like after every twilight movie? Stick with brown or red hair Kristen! Big fan! Because she filmed The Runaways, it was black. Have you been living under a rock?

    one oscar nomination does not make u famous, nor does a fake relationship with labeouf, her 15 minutes are up, nobody pays her any attention if she is not by labeoufs side or with him mentioned in everything written about her so you can get a grip on who she is, great career move, you're now only famous for labeoufs gf, those 15 minutes are ticking too

    what has she and jennifer aniston done to their faces? it looks like they have filled their mid-faces with something and made it look puffy, they have lost what made them look like themselves, or does botox to the mid face make it puffy and immobile? they look 'wrong' and weird

    * I agree with 'Peaceman300'--- Just because she's black doesn't mean she is ghetto, i'm sure you cant correctly define the word too. It's bold, she can pull it off, and her nose looks fine, Lady GaGa might have a "terrible" nose but not her!*

    She doesn't have the face for short hair. Looks too much like a boy. She needs to find a new stylist that knows something.

    The picture on the left is from when her hair had grown out from 'The Runaways' chop. You should get a different picture, because her hair was actually a lot longer then what it is now.
