Claire Danes's Emmys Hair: Should She Cut It For Real?

Posted on

We’ve had our hearts broken by faux bobs before, but we thought Claire Danes might be different. When we got a glimpse of the star’s super-short hair as she passed by the camera, there was a flurry of excitement around the office. “This could be the real thing!” we shouted.

Alas, our enthusiasm was short-lived. Mere moments later, during a truly delightful mock interview with her BFF Lena Dunham (who grabbed the mic from Ryan Seacrest — we think she may have missed her true calling), Danes revealed that her chin-length cut was pinned under and for one night only.

Sigh. Once we got over our disappointment, we got to thinking: Danes looks pretty awesome with the do, so perhaps she should take the plunge and chop her hair for real.

What do you think? Should Danes get herself to the salon and go for a bob?
