Did Claire Danes cut her hair or didn’t she? That was the question during Sunday’s Emmy Awards. It turns out the Homeland actress (and Emmy winner!) went with a glamorous faux bob for the night and looked totally chic while doing it. Claire’s Old Hollywood hairstyle is the perfect complement to her soft and romantic gown, plus it highlights her gorgeous cheekbones.

To get a faux bob like Claire’s, start with smooth, straight hair and a deep side part. Tease your hair at the crown to create more volume. Then starting rolling the ends of the hair under, piece by piece, and pin each piece to the scalp. Loosen the hair around your face a little bit to create a more natural style. Spritz with some light-hold hairspray, and finish your retro look with a swipe of red lipstick.
