GSI 1 / 8

Looking good, girl!

Amanda Bynes has been largely out of the news for the better part of a year now, but she resurfaced on Thursday in Beverly Hills, California, after getting her hair done and she looks happy and healthy.

The troubled star sported her signature long blond hair that stretched to her waist (we know, we know, she has extensions). Amanda, wearing a gray sweatshirt and oversized sunglasses, also rocked pointed nails as she and a friend left Glam salon.

She smiled for photographers eager to take her photo, a fairly rare occurrence these days, as she hasn't been photographed in public since November.

Last October, the "Hairspray" star returned to the Los Angeles Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, one year after being kicked out.

The actress was asked to leave the fashion school in fall 2014 for odd behavior, with other students accusing her of attending classes with sunglasses on while high on weed, paying others to finish her homework, and blatantly cheating off of classmates during tests.

She's mainly keeping to herself nowadays. Although many of her former "All That" costars reunited at Comic-Con recently, she was not there. TMZ reported that she wasn't even invited, but she's apparently telling friends she wouldn't have gone anyway.

Things were always so smooth for Amanda. In October 2014, she found herself in a treatment center after lashing out against her father on social media, shoplifting and DUI. The year prior, following an involuntary psychiatric hold, she spent time in a psychiatric hospital and then lived with her parents for several months.

Her life seems to be heading in the right direction now.
