This could be a number of things--too little or too much water, over fertilizing, leaf scorch (if planted in too much sun), etc. Typically, in hydrangea, this is caused by a watering issue. Has it recently been planted? If newly planted, there may be gaps in the soil around the root ball that is drying out the roots. I would tamp down the soil around the plant. I would also recommend upping the watering. In addition, it could be suffering from shock.
