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.

This woman needs help.
Looks drugged out. Pixie was so much better and classic. Her kids must be so embarrassed.

I personally liked the shorter cut. The extensions don’t bother me so much except it looks like she didn’t get a full set as the one side looks so sparse. Besides that and the fact that she is too old for that platinum (her choice, her problem) her makeup and face look like leather. For someone who is so Pro PETA she sure didn’t treat her own self with ethical treatment. I can’t wait to see her in another 20 years. Can you say YIKES?

Not trying to be mean, but her eye make-up is scary.

I don’t like either look, both are too severe. She needs something softer.

I liked it short. I actually thought that she had changed needing to look like she used to. A woman who can change so dramatically, share her life tragedies, can really bring power to a lot of other women going through the same thing. I hope she won’t go back to the way she was.
