Recreate Priyanka Chopra’s Towering Top Knot Bun & Take Your Look From Drab To Fab


When in doubt, resort to a top knot. Don’t believe us? Take inspo from the desi girl herself. Priyanka Chopra sure champions it like a queen. Fuss-free beauty looks are always a good choice because they are sure to make you look fabulous with minimum effort. Top knots may have earned a reputation for being the go-to lazy girl hairstyle but PCJ shows us that it can work as a glamorous updo as well. If you’d like to try this hairstyle on yourself, we help you with a step-by-step guide to recreating Priyanka’s towering top knot.

5 Steps To Ace Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s Top Knot Hairdo

Step 1: Hair Prep

Believe it or not, hair styling works best on unwashed hair. So, if you have skipped your hair wash day then good for you.  If you need to wash your hair, opt for a nourishing shampoo and conditioner rinse. Work in some serum on your damp hair and let it air dry.

Step 2: Volume Booster

Whether you’ve washed your hair or not, you are going to want to have a dry shampoo at hand to recreate the perfect top knot. Dry shampoo naturally boosts volume and you will have a full-bodied top knot even if your hair is on the thinner side. Spritz dry shampoo onto your roots and work it in with your fingers.

Step 3: Face Framing Tendrils

To make sure your face is perfectly framed, create a one-inch centre parting and leave out two tendrils of hair from either side to frame your face. Tie the rest of your hair high up above your crown area in a ponytail. Pull out more of your bay hairs to frame your face better.

Step 4: Wrap It Up

Time to create the knot. Spritz dry shampoo on sectioned lengths of your ponytail to boost volume and wrap these sections around the elastic band of the ponytail to create a top knot. Secure the knot with bobby pins at the base of the ponytail and make sure the hair is tightly wrapped. 

Step 5: Seal The Deal

Now that you’ve recreated the hairdo, don’t forget to set it in place so that it lasts long and looks gorgeous. Spritz a strong hold hairspray on the top knot. Avoid using hairspray on the face-framing tendrils. You can use a serum on the tendrils for a smoothened effect.

Now that you are well versed with the steps, here are some products to help you nail this hairstyle:

Priyanka leans towards an au naturel aesthetic for her makeup look to go with this hairstyle. Her eyes feature the subtlest cut-crease eyeshadow trend with a warm brown hue blended in the crease and a neutral shade on her lids. Her lash lines are further defined with brown kohl and mascara. A hydrating muted lipstick is applied to her lips.
