Emma Watson as a young Hermoine
From encounters with a three-headed dog to combating villainous Death Eaters, Hermione Granger has taken on seven years of challenges that the wizard world has thrown upon her. Being one of the most beloved characters in young adult literature, this young witch is now an icon for female heroism and bravery. Best of all, she sports curly, wavy hair.
Fans of the Harry Potter series are gathering at movie theaters left and right to watch the first part of the final film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". Fans have been following Harry and his two best friends, Ron and Hermione, since they were first years taking their first steps into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Since then, the trio has been in all kinds of trouble, from being out after hours to coming face to face with murderous villains. But perhaps what is most remarkable about the films is the way they capture the experience of growing up. Hermione Granger has certainly grown before our eyes, and her hair shows how she blossomed from a child eager to learn to a young woman ready to fight for mankind.
