Bella Thorne is ringing in the new year with a new look.

The former Shake it Up star took to Twitter to show off her new short blue hair locks before stepping out with friend Keke Palmer. E! Online reports that the gal pals were headed to the birthday party of Slim Jimmy of the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd.

Palmer and Thorne's night out comes after Palmer defended Thorne on Twitter amidst some drama involving Thorne, singer Charlie Puth, and Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey. Puth poured his heart out on social media when he thought he might have been in the middle of three-way romance. "No one should have their heart messed with like this, and I’m not going to be in the middle of it," he wrote, before finally declaring, "I'm just removing myself from this."

After Puth's tweet storm, Palmer later responded publicly, "Why couldn't you have just texted @bellathorne in private if you were confused? The interview is dated."

Regardless of her dating situation, Thorne has plenty to look forward to in 2017. The 19-year-old actress has at least six films scheduled to be released in the year, including a new Amityville horror film and a remake of a 2006 Japanese film titled Midnight Sun.
