Is Amanda Bynes’ shaved half head another checkpoint on her downward spiral, a la Britney Spears, or just a fashion choice? After her controversial behavior and plain absurd Twitter feed of late, people have been wondering whether the 27-year-old retired actress wasn’t in need of help. But, well, shaving half her head really isn’t that outrageous. Especially since the half head has been the go to trend for the past year or so (we blame Skrillex). Bynes tweeted a couple of pictures of her new do yesterday, accompanied by the caption: “I buzzed half my head like @cassie! No more old photos! This is the new me! I love it!” She was referring to the R&B singer, Cassie, who has a similar hairstyle.

The newly assimilated New Yorker had a bit of a hair mishap a few weeks ago, when a shoddy extension job left her with noticeable micro-beading. But after buzzing her head, she seems to have turned the hair-don’t into an actual wearable style. “I had to shave my head because of hair damage from someone @ John Barrett so I’m not loving my paparazzi pics for a few years. I have extensions but you can see them,” she tweeted. Well, until the trend wears off at least. And kudos to Bynes for that. If anyone can rock a half head, it’s the oddball actress for sure.
