She’s back to normal folks.

Miami’s iconic Coppertone girl has been returned to her previous state after losing the top portion of her head in Hurricane Irma.

According to a post on the MIMO Biscayne Association’s Facebook page, the sign was fixed on Dec. 10 with a “literal face lift”.

A crew of workers hoisted a new head and shoulders and fastened it to the sign, which overlooks the parking lot of the Smiling Pets Animal Clinic (7310 Biscayne Blvd).

According to the group, the decision was made to replace the damaged panel with a new one crafted by Neon Sign Solutions.

The sign is one of the only remaining “Coppertone Cutie” installations left in the country.

It has been located at its current location since 2008.
