Amanda Bynes’s Hair Evolution

They say that changing your hair a lot can be a sign of emotional distress. Well, look no further than Amanda Bynes, the Nickeloden star turned train wreck who appeared at a court date Tuesday in a long blue-green wig. From a Britney Spears-circa-2007 shaved head to a variety of insane, unkempt wigs, see Bynes’s hair evolution.

I’m Blue

Bynes channels Nicki Minaj (possibly to win over "true love" Drake?) in Manhattan criminal court on July 9. She faces charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence, and criminal possession of marijuana following her arrest in May.

Cousin It

Bynes looks completely disheveled as she appears in court in New York City for allegedly throwing a bong from her apartment window. She wears the same platinum-blonde wig that was draped over her face, like Cousin It dressed as Malibu Barbie for Halloween, when she was arrested on May 24.

Britney 2.0

In her 2013 mug shot, Bynes pulls a Britney Spears-circa-2007 move with a shaved head. Police responded to a call of someone smoking marijuana in the lobby of Bynes's midtown-Manhattan apartment building. The doorman reportedly led police to her apartment, which they allegedly found filled with marijuana smoke. Bynes was later evicted from the unit.


Work It Out

Obsessed with losing weight (she tweeted on July 3, "I just weighed myself and I'm 114! Only 14lbs closer to 100!"), Bynes pauses from working out with long, dyed-blonde locks to take a selfie.

Ombre Pink

In one of her first steps off the deep end, Bynes was arrested for a DUI in April 2012 in West Hollywood; she poses in her mug shot with light pink, dyed hair. Deeming the matter of presidential importance, she tweeted at Barack Obama: "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end.”
