Amanda Bynes didn’t quite go full Britney Spears circa 2007 as she shaved off half of her hair, revealing her new do on Twitter. The star cited R&B singer Cassie as the inspiration.
While I love Cassie’s hair do, Bynes, on the other hand, went from looking like a taller, blonder Snooki to um, the Barbie doll that became a victim to one of my unfortunate hair cutting schemes. For the record, I was seven-years-old when I “trimmed” one side of Barbie’s head.
Okay, fine. It’s not that bad. She kind of looks like Miley Cyrus in one blurry TwitPic:

While I also know it’s not my place, I can’t help but hope that this last year is really some sort of weird performance art piece, à la Joaquin Phoenix. She went so far and made me kind of proud that she wasn’t one of those celebrities who let fame knock her off of the rails. Oh, Amanda Bynes. The real Amanda Bynes, please come back to us soon.

Do you dig this new do? The 20-year-old tweeted this photo showing off a shorter, more mature look in this selfie. The x-factor judge recently told Allure,
“I love changing my hair a lot—I think it’s fun…I used to always want to dye my hair blue and purple and pink when I was younger, but I was busy trying to make it in the industry as an actress, and it was hard to go in for auditions with blue hair. And so when I heard of the dip-dye trend, I loved it, and I felt like I could finally dye my hair blue. You know you’ve made it when you can dye your hair blue.”
The side-swept bangs and shoulder-length locks really works for Demi. Things are looking good for Demi. Just don’t pull a Britney and shave it all off!
Three words: short, blonde and shaved. These were the hair trends this year rocking the celeb world. It’s kind of hard to tell who inspired who this year with all these similar and daring hair cuts. However, what I love about these celebrity do’s is that they can sometimes have meaning and inspiration behind them.
Here are 10 awesome celebrity hair makeovers:
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous makeovers, but this one has quite a bit of meaning behind it. The singer shaved a portion of her head in memory of Terry Richardson’s mom, Annie Lomax. Gaga tweeted a photo of her new hair with a special message to her friend.
2. CeCe Frey
CeCe Frey shocked “X-Factor” viewers when she debuted her new platinum blonde look. CeCe isn’t new to daring looks as she often paints leopard print spots on her face. Fierce!
3. Anne Hathaway
Bless Anne Hathaway’s soul. I fell in love with Anne Hathaway this summer because she was a total babe in The Dark Knight Rises. When I saw her with her pixie cut, courtesy of her role in the upcoming film Les Miserables, my heart was sent into flutters. She really can rock anything.
4. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus sent the twitterverse into a buzz of love-hate feuding with her new do. Despite what anyone says, I think it’s awesome that Miley’s new haircut was able to give her a lot of confidence.
5. Marina and the Diamonds
Marina and the Diamonds completely transformed her entire wardrobe for her new album, Electra Heart. In her video for “Fear and Loathing,” Marina is seen chopping off her thick, black hair and opting for a cute bob. The move was daring, but her transformation totally goes with the theme of her album.
