I liked this idea. The reason the ordinary cinnamon bun doesn't work for me, is that the beginning is too slippery. I need something to "anchor" it and twist the tail around. Maybe a simple knot like this would do the trick.
The initial "knot" caused me a bit of problems. It was difficult to get it smooth and firm. I also had some escaping hairs I had to tuck into the bun later.
Hubby's reaction was "It looks just like some normal bun?".
It looks like some plain, discrete, anonymous bun. I like that.
I haven't been able to do a regular cinnamon bun for many years because it slips and fails within minutes. This thing is the closest to a regular cinnamon bun I can do with my length.
I wonder how it would look if I partially braided (Like, after making the knot) this or fully braided (Braid first, then loop around) this?
Would I do this style again?
I'm going to need a bit of training to get the initial "knot" smooth and stable, but this has great potential.
