This thread has inspired me to do cinnabuns again.
How do you do a two or three-strand cinnabun?
My hair is at lower BSL I can now manage to do a cinnamon bun and it will hold in place all day. I usually hold it with a hairstick or bun pins. I find this a very comfortable hairstyle
I bring my hair to the side and twist tight and then I slowly place each roll outside the other. I start from the inside and work my way outwards. I find lightly oiling my hair helps the rolls stay in place better.
(please excuse the messy hair, it was abit windy outside )

Neoma, I posted instructions in my picture post, and also posted the link to an instructional video made by someone else.
I always thought I was making cinnabuns most of the time. But according to the information here I have been doing bee butt buns. I do know now that I do both now. So I'll will join with pictures too. Because finally there is a style I can do.
A question though. I see many holding their buns with Ficcares, how do you do it? Mine slip right out of the bun in 30 seconds. What could I be doing wrong?
My hair is shoulder length now... but that is nothing to flaunt.

My hip-length hair, held with roller pins. I usually use chopsticks for buns, but I have trouble getting them to hold a real cinnamon bun with all the coils showing.
Here's one from my album.
My cinnabuns are highly variable in their appearance. So much depends on what day post-washing it is, how humid it is, how I wore my hair the day before, etc. The one pictured about is about as smooth as I can get them; often, there are a lot of flyaways and it's not nearly that balanced.
Also, they tend to slip out a little bit for me. The bun itself stays mostly put, but the front of my hair gets wonky, kind of pulled at the top and slouchy above my ears. (Why yes, it is as unattractive as it sounds!) I tend to wear them higher on my head for this reason, so when it begins to loosen up, it gets a kind of romantic poof in the back and on the sides rather than something...else.
Shiny new thread!
