Bombshell Batch: Our Favorite Anok Yai Hairstyles This Year


If you were on Twitter in 2017, you remember the viral photo of a jaw-dropping girl during Howard University’s reunion week. After the photo garnered over 20,000 hits on social media, Anok Yai was approached by modeling agencies like IMG Models and Next Model Management, whom she eventually signed, and her career took off. The now supermodel has achieved significant success in the modeling industry, from being the second black model after Naomi Campbell to open a Prada show and close Theophilo to cover Vogue editions; in Japan, Germany, the Netherlands and the United States.

With this new era of Yai, we see a darker side to the model as she enters her fifth year in the industry. In 2022, she flaunted various hairstyles, ranging from a medium choppy bob, voluminous 70s curls and her natural mini fro. She also sported the trendy fringe (the side bangs return), a bluish black pixie and bantu knots at a Marc Jacobs show in June.

On the beauty side, the supermodel opted for her signature soft glam makeup, with glossy brown lips and shimmering eyeshadow. Yet, on one special occasion, we saw a colorful liner like the teal wing she displayed in July.
