What type of hydrangeas are they? Some are more tolerant of cold than others, so if they're not particularly hardy, you could have bud damage. You can try protecting them during the winter, and be sure to prune away all the dead bits mid-way through summer.

Don't cut them back in the fall. Only trim the dead tips once the leaves are fully open. They like acid soil.
