These naturally thick tresses are braided back on one side leaving the opposite side to fall over the shoulders for a sweet and sexy look and feel. This half -updo is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs product for hold and shine.

Priyanka Chopra is flaunting a sophisticated side-swept formal ‘do here with fantastic results. Her medium length blunt bob has had soft waves added throughout for extra volume. The deep side part creates a cascading effect and the side with less hair has been corn-braided towards the back of the head. This is a fun way to sweep the hair back to one side, rather than just pinning it into place. Priyanka has a square face shape, which suits side-swept hairstyles very well.

Her dark brown color is fabulous here as well and looks great with her warm, medium-dark complexion. Priyanka has a lot of warmth in her skin tone and this rich brown shade flatters it nicely, and it also brings out her hazel green eye color. This hair color is ideal for women with a medium to dark complexion that has warm/golden undertones to it.

Priyanka Chopra is an Indian film actress and singer. She also won the Miss World pageant in 2000.

Styling Steps

1. Part to the Right

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

2. Use a Large Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

3. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

4. Pin the Side Back

Placeholder articles

Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.

5. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

6. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

7. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
