  • Amanda Bynes kept it casual when she stepped out in Los Angeles Monday
  • The actress grabbed coffee and roamed around the area
  • She debuted a shorter, darker hairstyle during the sunny outing

Amanda Bynes looked relaxed when she took a break from her cosmetology class to stroll around Los Angeles this week.

On Monday, the 36-year-old Hollywood personality was photographed when she stepped out to grab coffee while sporting a casual look.

Bynes rocked a comfortable getup, comprising a plain black T-shirt, matching leggings and a pair of black quilted ballet flats, in the photos exclusively released by Daily Mail. She also wore cat-eye sunglasses for protection during the sunny outing.

What made the "She's the Man" star's latest sighting even more striking was the fact that she debuted a new hairstyle. In the snaps, Bynes rocked shorter and darker hair.

Later that day, the former child actress was seen wheeling a case of supplies to her car. She also had a black backpack, and her sunglasses were no longer on, revealing her seemingly makeup-free face.

Last month, she announced online that she was attending cosmetology school to become a manicurist.

Bynes already earned an associate's degree in merchandise product development at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in 2019. In April, she revealed that she was pursuing a bachelor's degree at the same school.

"I am continuing with my bachelor's degree at FIDM, majoring in creative industry studies with a core in beauty marketing and product development," she told E! News.

In March, the "Big Fat Liar" star's request to have her conservatorship terminated was granted. A judge ruled in her favor after determining that she no longer needed it anymore.

It can be noted that Bynes' mom, Lynn Organ, was given temporary conservatorship in 2013 after the actress set a stranger's driveway on fire. Organ was given full conservatorship over the former Nickelodeon star's person and estate a year later amid the latter's substance abuse problem.

Organ did not object to her daughter's petition. She even spoke on the issue via her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, saying she was "extremely happy and thrilled and proud" that Bynes managed to turn her life around.

In an interview with People that same month, Bynes broke her silence after her conservatorship was terminated. According to her, she worked hard to be able to live independently.

"In the last several years, I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently. I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter," she said.
