11 Crucial Lessons Amanda Bynes Has Taught Us About Style

Today we wish our girl, Amanda Bynes a very happy birthday!

While we wait in anticipation to see her awesome designs during and after her time at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, Calif., we can't help but go back in time and binge-watch some of Bynes' greatest performances. If we're not saying "Dear Ashley, thaaaat's me!" a million times, we're probably explaining that one part in "She's the Man" when Bynes as Viola walks in and... well you get the gist.

But as we took a trip down memory lane, we found some very important tips that Bynes has given us throughout the years -- so join us in celebrating her 28th birthday with the 11 crucial lessons she's taught us about style and beauty.

1. Ball caps provide a cool and casual look when you're hiding greasy roots.

2. Wind doesn't have to be a hair ruiner -- you just need to know how to work it to your advantage.

3. Thin headbands can do a lot more than you think.

4. No matter what you say about yourself, you probably look good.

5. Dresses can sometimes be a pain.

6. Pigtails look best when worn with a vintage flair.

7. You can be sexy and cute AT THE SAME DAMN TIME.

8. Nothing beats the flowing goodness of a maxi skirt.

9. Basic ponytails should just stop trying.

10. Change outfits a couple, or a million, times until you get your perfect look.

11. Glasses are some of the best accessories to have.
