• Amanda Bynes is removing her heart-shaped face tattoo
  • The former Nickelodeon actress is also getting rid of her ombre hair
  • Bynes is preparing for her conservatorship hearing later this month

Amanda Bynes shared some of the changes she’s doing on her physical appearance ahead of her conservatorship hearing.

A day after greeting her fans on a new Instagram account she set up on Wednesday, the 35-year-old actress shared a short clip of her moving the camera close to her face to give viewers a look at her fading face tattoo.

Bynes did not say a word in the video, but she indicated in the caption that she was going through a “tattoo removal process.”

The former child star debuted her heart-shaped face tattoo in September 2020 via her first Instagram account, which has since become inactive for more than a year.

In a post, she shared a selfie taken inside her house. The actress stared intently at the camera while donning a white shirt printed with the word “ACTIVE” in the middle. Bynes did not caption the post, but fans were drawn to the new ink on her face at the time.

Aside from getting rid of her face tattoo, the “All That” star revealed in another post on Thursday that she was changing her hairstyle. Bynes uploaded a close-up photo showing her dark hair in a bun and wrote “bye bye ombré hair” in the caption.

The former Nickelodeon starlet documented her transformation weeks before her big conservatorship hearing on March 22, according to The Blast.

In February, Bynes quietly filed a petition seeking the termination of her conservatorship at the Venture County Superior Court in California.

Bynes’ mom, Lynn Organ, was granted temporary conservatorship in 2013 after the “What A Girl Wants” actress set a stranger’s driveway on fire. A year later, Organ was given full conservatorship over her daughter’s person and estate.

Speaking of Bynes’ termination request, the actress’ attorney, David A. Esquibias, said, “Amanda wishes to terminate her conservatorship. She believes her condition is improved and protection of the court is no longer necessary.”

Meanwhile, Organ expressed her support for her daughter’s request through her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, saying she’s not against the termination of the conservatorship and she’s happy for Bynes.

On Wednesday, Amanda addressed her fans through her new Instagram account. In a video she uploaded, she thanked the fans for their support ahead of her court date.

“What’s up, Instagram? Amanda Bynes here. My court date is coming up in two weeks. I want to thank you all so much for your love and support. Peace out,” she said.

Bynes’ hearing will take place in Oxnard, California.
