Amanda Bynes has changed her hair color yet again--this time dying it brunette and sharing her new look with her followers this past week. She tweeted a message along with a photo on Christmas Day.

People magazine reports that in addition to changing her hair color, Amanda Bynes is planning on switching schools as well. She tweeted just a few days before Christmas that she hoped to transfer from the design institute she'd been attending prior to her last setback (FIDM), to the University of Southern California.

Hopefully that indicates she is doing well enough to return to school.

Amanda Bynes suffers from bipolar disorder and has battled drug and alcohol problems in the past. She did rather well in 2013 following her first big breakdown, but following a DUI arrest in September she spiraled again.

Here is Amanda Bynes's Merry Christmas tweet and the first glimpse fans got of her new brunette tresses.

The last time Amanda Bynes dyed her hair, it was from blonde to purple. Perhaps this more sensible look is indicative of a more sensible young woman. It would be nice to see the former actress make something of her life that has gone so drastically wrong in the past couple of years.

Do you think Amanda can be saved or do you think she might still be on a fast-forward path toward self-destruction?
