Okay, so I did not like the two double buns from yesterday.
So for today, I tried a braided Chinese bun out of the four braids. I like this one! It got pretty flat and nicely packed on my head and the five strand-base adds a little something that you can't immediately pinpoint.
It did give me an idea though: Would a horizontally split, double braid base work for a braided Nautilus bun?
