The cinnabun could be a bang, act as a more intricate top-knot or simply be made from a low puff. You can have one bun or two. You can do cinna-bun pigtails. The options are endless for your natural hairstyles – especially with updos. Check out Mika’s pics below. to see how she interpreted the style in 3 simple ways.
