Emma Watson: New Hair-Do, New Man?

Harry Potter beauty Emma Watson has reportedly possibly got a new man in her life. The self-professed feminist and activist, not to mention talented, beauty has been spotted in the company of William “Mack” Knight recently and People shares that there may be a romance brewing between the 2.

“The Harry Potter actress spent a weeklong romantic getaway with Knight, relaxing at popular vacation spot Big Sur, in California. There, they took full advantage of the amenities, going on scenic hikes and soaking up the sunshine at luxurious hotel Post Ranch Inn.”

Watson’s rep has declined to comment on the supposed romance between the actress and Knight. This isn’t the first that the pair have been spotted out on the scene. Emma and William were in each other’s company in October of last fall when they were spotted leaving the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York City together. Emma and William apparently took in a Broadway production of Hamilton on the said occasion.

People notes a bit of background information about Knight, relaying the accomplishments and impressive education that the possible new beau to Emma has.

“According to his LinkedIn profile, Knight is a Princeton graduate who also attended Columbia Business School in Manhattan. He’s spent almost five years working at Medallia Professional Services, which specializes in customer feedback and where he is currently a senior manager.’Tech/entrepreneurship enthusiast, business school grad, writer, artist, photographer, adventurer, naturalist, etc. Many passions. 160 characters won’t cut it,’ reads one of his online profiles, which features a handful of Knight’s Instagram photos – including a few from his vacation in Big Sur.”

This marks the first relationship that Emma has been in since her difficult split back in 2014 from Matthew Janney. The starlet spoke with Vogue soon after her break up from Janney, noting the challenging time for her and figuring out how to be single.

“I felt really uncomfortable. Even before my relationship ended, I went on a silent retreat, because I really wanted to figure out how to be at home with myself.”

A new man on her arm isn’t all Emma Watson is sporting, either. The talent also chose to change up her hairstyle and to change her look — perhaps for a new role or maybe just as a refresher. Cosmopolitan has fittingly termed the new hair style “The Gringe,” seeing as it is a grown-out fringe that the star has chosen to update her look with. As the publication notes, this sort of style is one selected by those commitment-phobes who are not fully on board with going for the original fringe, which sometimes can be a styling nightmare. A “Gringe” means that should the person sporting the look feel in a rush, the shorter hairs are still long enough to pin back or work into the longer strands. On the days styling is possible, the look is edgy and ultra-chic.

Cosmo makes note of the forethought and angst that is sometimes paired with selecting a new style, and where it was that the Emma chose to debut the new do.

“There are many difficult decisions a woman will face in her life, from what University course to take, to how to ask for a pay rise and whether to say yes to that Tinder date. But there is one decision that requires the advice of every single one of your friends and family. ‘Should I get a fringe?’The latest celebrity to take the plunge is Emma Watson, who debuted her new ‘do at the Colonia premier in Berlin.”

Emma Watson is rocking the look and definitely made the right choice to freshen up her look.
