We will see it everywhere in the spring, it brings Pamela Anderson back to life...
This 90s hairstyle was Pamela Anderson's signature. This famous falsely neglected bun is reborn in 2022 for a sexy and glamorous look. An iconic style that we will see everywhere this season.
The 90s continue to make us dizzy. Not a single month goes by without a forgotten trend resurfacing. French manicure, gloss, frosted eye shadow, large tweezers, or thin eyebrows have already regained their letters of nobility. Long outdated, these beauty trends are now shaping current beauty looks and sprucing up any look.
Forget Meghan Markle's fuzzy chignon or the classic bun: in this spring of 2021, it's the Pammy updo that's turning heads. It-girls and beauty stash is reviving Pamela Anderson's signature hairstyle: a Californian style, a wavy blow-dry, and a platinum coloring that seduced Hollywood and thrilled the whole world.
The craze is not surprising given the success of the Pam & Tommy series. Available on Disney + in France, the eight-episode biopic traces the passionate story of Pamela Anderson, then at the height of her career in Baywatch, and her drummer lover Tommy Lee.
On-screen, the metamorphosis of actress Lily James captivates. The makeup and hairstyle work is so virtuoso that it allows her to look 100% like the icon of the 90s. She brings young Pamela Anderson back to life by adopting, among other things, this Pammy updo.
This special bun is characterized by a play of dimension and textures. The wavy lengths are swept over the top of the head and piled up in a deceptively sloppy motion. A fine, wispy, and rounded fringe unfolds at the front to highlight the look. Longer locks escape to the sides to frame the face.
At stake? A graphic hairstyle, full of volume and movement for a sexy, glamorous, and vintage look.
In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Barry Lee Moe, a hairstylist in charge of Lily James' hairstyles on the set of Pam & Tommy, explains: "Pam's look is both timeless and very 90s. Her cut was always ultra degraded and textured".
In the columns of Variety, the hairdresser explains that he was inspired by many photos of Pamela Anderson taken in the 90s in order to recreate her emblematic looks: “Her hair reflected the mood in which she was. When she is in love, her hair was wild and carefree. When she's going through a divorce, her hair is tighter, with less texture."
To revive the iconic hairstyles of Pamela Anderson, the expert used wigs. The brushing seen in Baywatch was achieved by exposing the fiber to sea air. The wind and salt added the essential finishing touch to this cut: "It helped achieve the perfect look," he says.
Barry Lee Moe also explains that Pamela Anderson had made armor out of her hair: "I feel like it protected her in those [public] moments because she could hide behind it. It was important to me that you feel this feeling of protection through this hair”.
