• Claire Danes is having quite the year. Not only is she starring in Showtime's Homeland, but she recently took home an Emmy for her role. To celebrate, we're looking taking a look at the many lengths her hair has gone through over the years. 

    She first stole our hearts in 1994 as angsty teen Angela Chase on My So-Called Life. Her vibrant red hair had us all itching to dye our own.

  • In 1995, Interview Magazine perfectly captured the 90s in this photo shoot of the actress. We're obsessed with her colored barrettes.

  • For the 2011 Golden Globes, Claire opted for a sleek updo. 

  • She went for the wet look in 2011 and surprisingly pulled it off.

  • This unique updo from the 2012 Golden Globes is one of our favorites. 

  • This year Claire surprised us all with a bob at the Emmys. Turns out it was completely faux.
