Ever since the Pam & Tommy Disney+ mini-series was first released earlier this year in February, celebrities and fans alike have been paying homage to the iconic Pamela Anderson. People from all over have been sporting her trademark look and as a result, she even started trending on TikTok with the hashtag #PamCore going viral. The power of the internet, ey?

One celeb in particular who has been consistently rocking the 90s Pam-inspired updo is Skims founder Kim Kardashian. She first wore the hairstyle when appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and most recently, she served the chic updo in Portofino, Italy, for her sister Kourtney's wedding celebrations.

The artistic genius behind Kim's fire looks is none other than celebrity hairstylist and global creative director of Color Wow, Chris Appleton. Are we surprised? Not really. And after an abundance of requests (I, too, have asked), Chris has finally delivered what we've all been wanting: an awaited tutorial. So, if you too want to recreate Kim's Pam-inspired hairdo, listen up.

In the Instagram video, Chris first goes straight in with a large curling iron to give the hair a "rough bend". He says that "it doesn't have to be perfect but you want to cover the whole head". Noted.

Then, he instructs to saturate the hair using the Color Wow Style on Steroids, £23, which he says is like "backcombing in a bottle". Adding to this, Chris tells us that it'll give "all the volume and hold you need", meaning you don't have to use another product.

After leaving a couple of face-framing hair pieces out at the front, Chris finishes off the look by simply twisting up the hair and securing it into place with a claw clip. For that extra sense of security and to ensure that no strands let loose, he pins the top of the hair into place.

And there you have it! Yet another easy peasy tutorial courtesy of the world's greatest hairstylist, me! Just kidding (ah, what am I like), for that title is truly deserved by Chris 🤴🏼.
