Pamela Anderson Ditches Her Pixie, Adds Long Extensions

05/27/2014 at 07:10 PM ET

Pamela Anderson‘s pixie cut may have made her feel “really powerful,” but when it came time to go full bombshell, the actress reverted to a familiar look: Super long, super voluminous blonde extensions, which she wore Tuesday night to the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo.

Anderson has been rocking a close-cropped do since last October, a major change that got her tons of positive comments from PEOPLE readers and Ellen alike. The actress told Elle that she was initially worried about going so short (fearing that she looked “like Anderson Cooper”) but she embraced the positive change the hairstyle represented.

“The rock-star thing became very destructive, like, wow. I didn’t know what I was doing. I just kind of became that thing,” she said of her famed full blonde bouffant. “The hair, that rock-star kind of lifestyle, just living a dream. It kind of took over. It started out very innocent and then I turned into a cartoon character. And I started to feel like a cartoon character.” She echoed that sentiment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saying “I just thought my hair had had a ‘life.’ And I wanted to put that behind me and start fresh.”

But despite all her raves about her fresh new do, the star has been slowly growing it out — wearing a longer look in January and sporting a mini-mullet in Cannes this week. And apparently she couldn’t wait to get back to the do she’s known for, because she was back to “The Pamela” on the red carpet, plunging neckline, smoky eye makeup, sparkly heels and all.

OMG!!! She needs to just give it up! She looks hideous, and all that plastic surgery and botox has taken its toll on top of all the drugs and alcohol abuse. She is NOT 30 something anymore, she can be beautiful, sexy AND classy all at the same time. Sheesh, give it up!

I hated the pixie (way too manly) but this makes her look crazy.

I don’t think this look is flattering at all. She looks hard and older than her years. The short hair and soft makeup looked very pretty on her. I can see why some commenters think she looks scary in this photo. She is a pretty lady and this isn’t her best look.

She looked SO much better with her haircut and less make-up! She looks “like a cartoon character” again. :(

She looks like she’s started drinking. Shame – I loved the confident, pretty pixie look. This is sad

Wow and bet she paid good money for that birds nest on her head. So sad she’s to insecure to just age gracefully. The makeup is overdone and makes her look hard and the low cut dress is just trashy and tasteless! Bleached blonde hair and big boobs don’t always equate to beauty!

I think this look is definitely NOT working for her anymore, i didnt care for the pixie either, made her look butch, didnt fit her… i think a long bob style with some highlight and low lights would be nice on her… not long and trashy, but not short and boyish either. NO MORE DARK EYE…there a difference between soft and smokey and looking like avril levine after a night at the club.
