Priyanka Chopra’s hair always looks flawless—and on the cover of InStyle’s August issue, she rocks some seriously stunning waves.

Ever the quintessential model, Chopra was game for trying something different while on the set of Long Island’s Jones Beach. “Priyanka's professionalism and willingness to try new looks made for a very enjoyable and pleasant day,” said Gray. “The beach was almost totally devoid of people, and the great natural light provided an amazing backdrop for the shoot.”
