Short and shaggy manes are in and we can all thank Justin Bieber and Emma Watson.
This according to the Wall Street Journal, which reports, “The fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google are for Ms. Watson and Mr. Bieber.”
Pixie cuts haven’t been truly popular since the ‘90s (apparently? Quick, someone tell every thirtysomething mother at the supermarket), but leave it to the endlessly trendy “Harry Potter” starlet to bring the style back into vogue. After wrapping the final “Potter” flick, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” (which made MTV’s list of the Top Newsmakers of 2011), Watson chopped off her long, curly locks in a concrete display that she was leaving Hermoine Granger in the past and moving on into adulthood.
As for the “Bieber swish,” as the Journal hilariously calls it, well, you probably don’t even have to look out your front door to see one of those if you have a teenage son. The side-swept style popularized by the “Mistletoe” singer is everywhere … even though he has stopped sporting the famous cut himself.
