Does Emma Watson Need a Wig?

Seems new scenes for the "Deathly Hallows" finale have to be shot -- how will they cover "Hermione's" short hairstyle?

A pixie-haired Emma Watson wowed at last month's penultimate "Harry Potter" premiere but the freedom she gleaned from the cute haircut may have been short lived. Seems that the actress and her co-stars have been summoned by Warner Bros. to re-shoot closing scenes for the "Deathly Hallows: Part 2."

"I’ve been on Harry Potter for ten years now, so I felt the need to mark the end of it in some way – I needed some way to say to myself, 'Right, you’re entering a new phase of your life now,'" Watson told the Daily Mail of her cropped hair. "I needed a change, and that’s what the haircut is about." True, but how's she going to play bushy-haired Hermione when she doesn't have any hair? There is some wiggle room to be had...

The scene set to be re-filmed over the holidays, involves Hermione, Ron and Harry 19 years after they graduated from Hogwarts as they send their children off to their first year at the wizarding school. Makeup artists will age Watson well beyond her normally youthful look and will have to scramble to find a middle-aged Hermione hairstyle on a suitable wig (can anyone imagine perky Hermione with gray hair?). But if there's anyone who recognizes what it takes to make a film look its best, it's the young crew at Harry Potter, who spent the past decade filming the series. "We only had two days to shoot it and we needed so much more time than that," Watson said, adding understandingly that "We have re-shoots at Christmas."
