The actress was seen by police officers after they discovered her attending an appointment at the Josh Wood Colour salon in Notting Hill, but she avoided a fine.
Following the drama, a spokesperson for the actress said: ‘Following government guidance, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ hair was coloured by Josh Wood for the purpose of the film she is currently shooting.
‘The salon was opened privately for the production and everyone involved had been tested and followed both the DCMS working guidelines and the film production regulations.
‘As per Film London and current government advice, by continuing to follow the approved COVID-19 guidance, Film and TV production can continue in the Capital and locations can continue to accommodate shoots and recces that are carried out in-line with the guidance.’

Priyanka is currently living in London with her husband Nick Jonas, 28, and was pictured arriving at the shop alongside her mother Madhu before two police officers arrived in a squad car and appeared to order the customers out.
The pictures sparked disbelief from members of the public who have been subject to increasingly tight lockdown rules.
One directly contacted her on Twitter, asking ‘Why are you and your mum pictured at a salon getting your hair done when it’s against the rules in the UK right now??!!
‘Why are the rules different for you, who do you think you are?’
Sarah Nichols said: ‘Getting so fed up with ‘celebrities’ thinking they don’t have to do this lockdown like the rest of us.

‘Why should Priyanka Chopra be able to get her hair done. Why does some swanky London salon think it’s above the rules. GRRRRRRR.’
Another added: ‘Why should Priyanka think she is above the law and flout the regulations? Selfish beyond belief. I hope Josh Wood her stylist gets £10k fine.’
A spokesperson for the Met Police told MailOnline: ‘Police were alerted at around 17:40hrs on Wednesday, 6 January to reports of a Covid breach taking place within a hairdressers on Lansdowne Mews, Notting Hill.
