Amanda Bynes stepped out in New York City Monday morning with some ratty-looking extensions.

The troubled actress almost seemed to draw attention to them, at times shielding the exposed part of her scalp with her hand. Check out the shocking close-up photo below:

It's a look we've seen before ... on Britney Spears. Back in 2007, Britney's rat nest reflected the mess that her personal life was (losing custody of her kids to Kevin Federline).
