It’s been a minute since Priyanka Chopra debuted her super-long mermaid hair at the start of fall — and kept it mid-length for years, which is great for this It’s a whole new look for an actor. The upside of having long hair is that you can have more fun, as Chopra walked the red carpet in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Thursday night for the Red Sea International Film Festival.
Deep side parted, her long hair styled into some excellent pre-Raphaelite waves. Chopra’s curls were sparkly, and the star wore them with a huge smile and an equally sparkly ensemble (a tunic-like gown by Tony Ward). But even her diamond and emerald necklace was no match for her hair.
The Pre-Raphaelite hairstyle trend first made its debut at the Met Gala in May. There were dramatic waves on everyone’s shoulders, from Kaia Gerber and Sophie Turner to Phoebe Dynevor and Hoyeon Jung. Dress it up polished or baggy, there’s a style for everyone—and it’s easier than you think to execute. Try taking a few sections of hair and braiding them while slightly damp, then going to bed, and taking them out the next day. Alternatively, hair tools can help. Try the new BaByliss Wave Secret Air Hair Waver, which will do all the hard work for you, creating perfect waves in seconds.
