Since the premiere of Hulu's "Pam and Tommy," interest in some of Pamela Anderson's most iconic beauty moments has been reignited. Chief among them? The messy updo hairstyle that she often sported.

While celebrities from Gigi Hadid to Ciara have all tried their hand at the "Pamela Anderson blond" hair color, even more celebrities are re-creating Anderson's messy updo. The latest to try the trend is Selena Gomez, who swept her new bottleneck-bangs haircut into the style for the ABC Disney Upfront Presentation.

Thanks to the fierce resurgence of Y2K fashion and beauty trends, don't expect the hairstyle to go anywhere any time soon. "Everyone is obsessed with Pamela Anderson's fierce '90s beauty these days, and for good reason — it's iconic," celebrity hairstylist Clayton Hawkins previously told POPSUGAR. "Her classic messy bun is gonna be everywhere this summer."

If you're looking to have your own nostalgic Y2K beauty moment, alongside Anderson's updo, there is a ton of beauty inspiration to choose from this season. Barbed-wire tattoos are back (as evidenced by Dua Lipa and Phoebe Bridgers), '90s-supermodel nails have been all over the red carpet, and the "supermodel lip," which features brown lip liner, is seemingly here to stay.

Take a closer look at Gomez's updo here.
