Hair Wars: Amanda Bynes Does the Half Shave

Surprise — the troubled one-time star's latest 'do actually is trendy.

Amanda Bynes' actions usually cause her to look like she's emerged from a trailer park. Case in point: her face piercings, matted faux-hair extensions and penchant for wearing hooker heels on the cardio floor of Equinox in West Hollywood. 

On Thursday night, the She's the Man star made her latest publicly announced appearance change by undergoing a half shave — the first thing she's done in a very long time that, dare we say it, actually is kind of cool.

Rihanna has been sporting a half shave on her Diamond's World Tour, while fellow performer Cassie has been a longtime fan of the 'do. Brazilian model Alice Dellal, who has been a face of Chanel, also is a half shave devotee.

Bynes took to Twitter to share the news. 

"I buzzed half my head like @cassie! No more old photos! This is the new me! I love it!" 

Whether she's en route to a trendy turnaround or is slowly creeping into old Britney Spears baldness territory, only Bynes can tell. 
 
For now, we just dig her hair.
