Emma’s ‘pixie’ cut inspired by Mia Farrow

London: Harry Potter star Emma Watson says she swapped her long locks for a ‘pixie’ cut because she was inspired by fellow actress Mia Farrow.

"My mother has this haircut and this has been her signature look since she was, like, 16. I always thought it was really cool and wanted to try it,” a daily quoted her as telling MTV News.

“When I went in to my hairdresser, I took in a picture of Mia Farrow and was like, ``I want to look like this``.

"I can’t believe how much of a stir this haircut caused. It’s pretty nuts. The haircut has been a big deal," she added.

Mia, 65, has starred in numerous films including ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and ‘Hannah And Her Sisters’.
