There are icons and then there is Pamela Anderson, the woman who had the ’90s beauty scene on lock. With the actor reentering the public sector thanks to the release of her latest documentary: “Pamela, A Love Story,” it was only a matter of time until her most iconic beauty moments also started to resurface. Case in point? The “Pamela Anderson updo” was recently spotted on Julianne Hough.
For an appearance at the 2023 Tony Awards, Hough’s version of the style was paired with soft makeup and a floral-print gown. Created by hairstylist Xavier Velasquez, the style was equal parts timeless and trendy. As is tradition with the look, her hair was piled into a messy bun on top of her head – save for the curtain bangs, which added structure to her face and further strengthened the resemblance to Anderson’s look back in the ’90s.
Over the last couple of years, “Pamela Anderson updos” have been recreated by everyone from Ciara to Millie Bobby Brown and even Doja Cat. It’s no surprise the look has gained widespread attention as celebrities and fans alike try their hand at their own versions. The style is perfect for formal occasions – like in Hough’s case, an award ceremony – while also being laid-back enough to become a daily go-to, particularly in the warmer months.
