On January 31, actor and activist Pamela Anderson is telling her story in her own words with a Netflix documentary called Pamela, a love story, as well as a memoir. To celebrate, here’s a look back the makeup and hairstyle moments that (still) have the girlies in a chokehold.

The OG Beach Babe

Baywatch was how Anderson got her start — but it only marked the beginning of her reign amongst the most influential figures in pop culture.

Team #Pamcore Updo

With modern babes like Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, and countless others recently rocking a similar ‘do on red carpets and beyond, this messy, tousled, curled, and utterly iconic hairstyle is textbook Pam.

A True ’90s Brow

A-listers like Bella Hadid and Laverne Cox (to name a few) have recently experimented with pencil-thin eyebrows, a signature look for the bombshell since she first emerged on the scene.

The Barb Wire Effect

Fit with a gunmetal smokey eye and an enviably voluminous blowout, Barb Wire has served as endless inspiration (and has become quite the popular Halloween costume for it-girls like Kendall Jenner).

Pigtails Fit For A Red Carpet

While attending a Tommy Hilfiger store opening back in 1997, the Canada-born actor experimented with effortless pigtails and a seriously oversized hat.

Denim Blue Eyeshadow

Y2K frosted blue eyes have gotten a modern-day rebrand to the more matte “washed denim” eye ... But ICYMI: Pamela did it first.

Pass The Crimper

Attending the World Music Awards in 2000, Anderson was giving pop star energy with her oh so Y2K crimped tresses.

Smokeshow Glam

Pam has always been a fan of a serious smokey eye and some neutral lips — but she turned her signature look up a notch while attending the 2002 American Music Awards.

Bouncy Blowout

At the 2006 American Music Awards, Anderson’s voluminous hair reached new heights in this dreamy moment (serious hair goals).

Go For The Chop

Looking refreshed and radiant as ever, the loving mother of two debuted a pixie haircut in her signature bleach blonde hue back in 2014.

Broadway Debut

In early 2022, Anderson made her Broadway debut as Chicago’s Roxie — and luckily, her fans got 8 weeks of on-stage smokey eyes and glamorously ruby red lips.

Parisian Chic

Perhaps an ode to her ’90s-era oversized hat moment, Anderson looked radiant as ever in Paris, dripped in all-Jacquemus-everything just before the start of 2023. Icon things.
