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.

I am not disagreeing with the long hair. She just needs a softer style. What I think would have looked awesome on Pam would have been a sophisticated bob with a defined edge-style cut..

What is this?

She needs to realize that she’s going to age and she’s not going to be the same sex symbol Pamela from 20 years ago. There are so many celebs that older and know how to rock it still. She just needs to find a happy medium. I think the pixie only works for some and that was a drastic cut. Now to go back to long again come on

She looks ridiculous.

She looked so pretty, young and reborn with shorter hair. It seemed she was embracing her experience, true beauty and surpassing the trashy persona she built her career on. Like Farrah Fawcett, who showed everyone her true acting talent with Burning Bed (I think that’s what the movie was called) I thought maybe Pamela could show everyone that she is more than a wild, wigged out hair extension chick with way too much makeup on (which just accentuated wrinkles), someone who wants to attract the attention of people who aren’t 17 year old Family Guy creeps. Too bad.
