Joan Smalls showed up and showed out with a striking new ‘do last night (Oct. 18). The model hit the red carpet at Lord & Taylor for a Karl Lagerfeld Paris x ELLE launch event rocking fabulously twisted bantu knots and beachy waves.

Her stylist Andrew Fitzsimons created the look using his own Easilocks extension hairline to lengthen her tresses and Alterna Haircare to prep the hair before flat-ironing. He then twisted up her into six large sections of knots in the crown area.

The cascading highlighted waves were the perfect finish to the chic look. We’re also loving her makeup by Porsche Cooper – especially her lined eyes!
