Tyra Banks is never afraid to experiment with her hair. She’s tried colorful bold shades, went short with a piecey pixie and debuted a full-on “Richard Branson” with white wispy strands. But lately, welcoming a newborn isn’t the only change in her life, (nor is getting that diaper changing balance down to 50-50 with her boyfriend!) — she decided to change her hair up a bit with some long locks.

She debuted the new style over the weekend on Instagram with the caption, “Something new #locks #locs.”

And as everyone knows, one selfie just isn’t enough when you’re rocking a new hair do, so naturally she followed it up with a second…

… and a third, where she’s fully feeling the look, captioning it, “Whip them #locs girl.”

Banks’ new do is thanks to Dr. Kari Williams‘ celeb-favorite Goddess Faux Locs, which are made with human hair for a lighter and more authentic feel than traditional faux locs. Williams posted a photo of Banks’ new do, giving her the “enthusiastic hands” emoji for her elegant new look.

When PEOPLE caught up with her America’s Next Top Model former co-judge, Nigel Barker during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, he told us that having a child is “something she really wanted to do.”

And she’s certainly making the most of her time with her new baby, even if that means getting significantly less shut eye. “Some mornings you wake up, and you’re like, ‘Where am I? I don’t know what’s going on. And I know it’s not a good idea for me to drive right now because I did not sleep’,” she told E! News at the Simply Stylist conference in L.A. on Sunday.

She’s even getting that balance between motherhood and entrepreneurial powerhouse down.

“Well, I’m on maternity leave right now, just taking a break… I really now am empowering my team. I’m understanding delegation, understanding that I don’t have to do everything to make something successful,” she told E! News. “I’m on maternity leave and Tyra Beauty is kickin’ butt!”
