Emma Watson, Bieber boast 2011's 'Most Influential' hair

According to the Wall Street Journal, two young stars have the hottest haircuts of the year: actress Emma Watson and singer Justin Bieber. The paper has dubbed their hairstyles the "Most Influential" of 2011.

“Hairstylists are being inundated with requests for pixie cuts and the Bieber swish,” the WSJ notes. (As you can see in the photo above, though, Bieber doesn't even have the "Bieber swish" anymore - he cut his hair in February.)

Nonetheless, the paper continues, “The enthusiasm plays out online, where the fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google are for Ms. Watson and Mr. Bieber.”

According to the Journal, Watson’s cropped cut is particularly notable, since for women, “short hair hasn’t been trendy since the ’90s.” Currently, celebs like Michelle Williams, Halle Berry and Pink are also rocking the pixie.

The WSJ names other fashion highlights from 2011, including the Royal Wedding (deemed the “Fashion Event of the Year”); Kanye West’s Paris Fashion Week debut (the “Biggest Runway Flop"); and Target’s in-demand Missoni collaboration.

Also popular this year? The Mid-Century style, as seen on “Mad Men”; three-piece suits (a la Justin Timberlake); and the Alexander McQueen Met exhibit.

What trends will you remember from 2011?

    I like her smirk, but the eye makeup is too dark and the haircut makes her ears stick out- in a slightly Obamaesque fashion.

    Thank you for this in-depth story Lindsay Hunter-Lopez. I do have one question for you.
    What is it like swirling the drain of journalism?

    IMO, the only woman who looks hot with a Pixie cut is Halle Berry (who has had that cut for YEARS before Emma Watson). I am a fan of Emma, Michelle Williams, and Pink, but I just think Halle is the only woman who can pull it off and actually look even hotter.

    The audio in the middle is what makes it classic. Seriously though I'm wondering what the purpose of the bot is. Can't see any financial motivation.

    Time for you to get your d-bag eyes out of the distorted fantasy that is Playboy and most photoshopped fashion magazines and realize that her body is totally normal. Now go back to the frat house and let the adults have a conversation.

    I'm not trying to rip apart Emma Watson because I REALLY do like her a lot. I think before she cut her hair she was a very pretty girl. I'm not even saying she's not pretty anymore but she dropped a lot. I only speak up because I don't want girls to read this garbage and think guys actually like it.

      Newsflash: Why do girls have to care what guys like or don't like? It's her hair and her choice.

    Unfortunately, most Americans live vicariously through the pop and celebrity cultures, which are rife in the United States.

      Oh and I'm not your bra- lololololol.
      Separate note: Justin's suit looks terrible. Other than that, whatever. Live and let live guys. They aren't hurting you. And also, some guys do like short hair... some guys don't. You couldn't ever say "ALL GUYS LIKE THIS OR THAT" etc. It will never be true. Kay I'm done. Goodnight.

    Emma Watson really gets on my nerves. When she was 6 years old on the first HP she was cute. Now she is just annoying.

    Not being very attractive to begin with, I will never understand why Watson chose to chop off her hair. The pixie cut is the worst thing to happen to women hair since Sinead O'Connors shaved dome.

    I literally thought Bieber was a lady there. Also, get a suit that fits. You look like a clown in a suit two sizes to big.

    Emma Watson has the WORST hair cut of any woman I've seen this year. As a young adult male she's not even 1/10 as attractive as she was before she cut her hair.

      Marty, please. If there is anything about Beiber that you find somehow masculine, you need to have your testosterone lebel checked.

      Watson is an adorable young woman. So is Beiber.
