I have 3 sets of Ficcare that I can’t seem to get any use out of.
- 2 icy silver in large from the pearlized collection
- 2 blue jeans in large from the border II collection
- and 2 emerald from a border collection that appears to be discontinued both at Ficcare headquarters and headgamesonline. Hmm?
(Yikes, that is 252 USD worth of hair toys I don’t use!)
Some years ago I could wear them for cinnamon buns
But then cinnamon buns lost their stability and I started using them with braided buns
Then the braided buns lost their stability too and that was pretty much the end of me using them.
I have tried an experiment to see if a crown wrap would work
Slightly messy in the back because it was just a quick attempt. I could make it look sleeker if I braided it to the side to begin with I think?
But I guess it doesn’t matter how it looks in the back because it looked huge from the front!
I tried holding a Figure 8 bun with one and it looked good from the back but…
...It gapes uselessly over most of the bun and looks ridiculous from the side
I tried one in each Figure 8 last I made doubles, but even that they are too small for!
I mean, Ficcares are even almost too small for just gaping over my base braid!
(Okay, this is a “Fakkare” from Evita Peroni, but the statement still stands)
I thought of putting them up on the trading board alongside the Hairsense brush that doesn’t work for me at all: It just “slips” over my hair without getting through to my scalp. (Figures that the brush would be a disappointment too!)
But I can’t get myself to do that. They blue and green ones are flaking and peeling along the edges and I’m generally not very impressed by them. “The Rolls-Royce of hair clips”? Hah.
I did get double Ficcares to work for holding a rosebun, but they also almost drown out the details of the bun.
I got a single Ficcare to hold a braided Nautilus 1-1½ year ago, but it wasn’t completely comfortable or stabile.
Maybe I could use doubles to hold the centre first and then slip the outer coils around the Ficcares later?
Now that I’ve gone digging through my old photos I found an old favourite I haven't done in ages: The “horseshoe bun” or “super flat bun”
I wonder why I stopped doing these? I really can’t remember. Hmm?
Annoying picture-spam aside, I guess tomorrows hair-plans are to give the braided Nautilus a shot and see if I can hold it with one or two Ficcares. And if not, see if the “horseshoe” bun still works.
Anyone have another style that might work?
