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

Claire Danes Emmys 2013 John Shearer/Invision for Academy of Television Arts

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.

RELATED: Even more Emmys coverage right here!

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?

NO!!!! Her nose is way too big for the short hair. This look is a major DON’T!!!

That’s the same bob she had for most of the 90’s…

It makes her look like she is in her forties. I.c.k.

oooh! didn’t realize 14 year olds wrote for people.

Shading on the sides of her nose would have helped – get a makeup artist!

Shorter hair always ages this girl…
The picture above isn’t as bad as on camera when she accepted her award…she looked matronly.

Forget the bob – she needs boobs! The dress with the plunging neckline makes no sense with those tiny ant hills!

The hair is okay, but she is so flat chested, her head isn’t the first place you look, she needs a dress to flatter, that dress just points out the obvious.

I love Claire Danes but this is not a flattering look for her at all.
