I would not prune them right now, though you can trim off the damaged flower blossoms. Most hydrangeas bloom on old growth, so if you prune, you will lose the blooms next year. They will regrow their leaves when spring comes, as long as the stems are alive. Once you see what stems have died, you can trim them away.
