The beautiful brunette Anna Kendrick knows how to rock a sleek sexy chignon with the best of the them.

Looking Holiday Glam in a shimmering, short-sleek Carbon dress and drool worthy Christian Louboutin pumps, Anna recently appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Next (WWHL).

Anna paired the gorgeous Carbon dress with a sleek sexy chignon which shimmered under the Bravo studio lights.

The beauty of a sleek sexy chignon is that is can either complement a stunning ensemble like Anna wore, or stand alone as a beautiful updo.

Talking about her recent turn on the star studded cast of Into The Woods where actress Emily Blunt became her BFF and is "the kinda gal who loves a fart joke."

No Slouch To Gorgeous Chignon Updos And Buns

She also had lovely things to say about Meryl Streep who is just "kind of a bro" and Chris Pine whom she got to kiss.

Anna reported Pine "tastes like cinnamon in a meadow."

Meanwhile, Anna is no slouch to awesome updos.

The one she wore on WWHL was killer and surprising easy to do if you have medium length tresses which are medium to thick and either naturally or temporarily straight.

Step By Step - Sleek Sexy Chignon How To

December 24, 2014 - WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE- Episode 11208 - Pictured: (l-r) Anna Kendrick- (Photo by: Charles Sykes/Bravo) Tuesday, December 23 on Bravo (11-11:30 p.m. ET) 2014 Bravo Media, LLC December 24, 2014 - WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE- Episode 11208 - Pictured: (l-r) Anna Kendrick- (Photo by: Charles Sykes/Bravo) Tuesday, December 23 on Bravo (11-11:30 p.m. ET) 2014 Bravo Media, LLC

If you want to copy Anna's sleek sexy updo follow the steps listed below and provided by Hollywood Hairstylist Robert Hallowell:

1.  Start with dry straightened hair which has either been wet or dry washed to remove dirt and debris.

2.  Working on 2" sections of pre-straightened hair, apply a strong sculpting cream or gel with a fine hair friendly tooth comb.

Note:  Select a product compatible with your hair type and texture.  The goal is to create a solid hold on the hair so that the chignon has grip and longevity.

3.  Use the comb to direct all of the hair backwards towards the back of the head.  Optionally you can create this look with or without a fringe and/or various parts.

4.  Gather hair into a ponytail with a base positioned halfway between the top and bottom of the back of the head.

6.  Twist ponytail in a clockwise or counterclockwise position to form a type of hair rope.

7.  Using the index finger of one hand positioned at the base of the ponytail, lift the twisted pony up and over and wrap clockwise or counterclockwise until all of the hair has been used to form a bun.

8.  Firmly anchor the bun in place with bobby pins either in a color to match or contrast your current hair color.

9.  Apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands.  Massage together and lightly swipe over the top of the finished hairstyle.

10.  For extra hold spritz a bit of firm hold hairspray into the palms of your hands.  Lightly swipe over the finished bun.
