Ficcare Hair Accessories Review and Giveaway!!



"Ficcare(FeKAARE) is derived from the Portuguese word "Ficar" which means "to stay." It was inspired by 3 sisters' vision "to stay" in business together and for our products "to stay" everlasting with our customers. Ficcare's collection of modern, upscale, and elegant accessories captures a sleek, practical attitude. Ficcare continually strives to design unique and contemporary pieces that are timeless and functional. All of our hair accessories are hand made and hand painted."

A close-up of my clip
Ficcare sent me one of their beautiful Maximas Clips for review. I was sent the Gold Maximas Lotus in the large size. This is a lovely accessory for your hairstyles! There are so many ways to use this...the list is practically endless! I usually wear my hair with just the sides pulled back, or, during the summer, in a ponytail. I have discovered so many new looks with this Maximas clip, though! First I tried something easy...I did a casual bun, and instead of using bobby pins or jaw clips, I used the Maximas clip to hold it in place. Not only did it hold it in place all day, but it looked good while doing it! I love that I don't have to jam bobby pins in or end up hiding all my hair by using jaw clips...this looks very elegant while keeping the hair in place! 
After seeing how nicely this worked for a bun, I tried a new one...just twisting my hair up, and clipping it in place (I don't think there's a name for this one :). Again, this worked great! 

A side view
Then, using the helpful videos on the Ficcare website, I learned how to do a French Twist. I have always thought these looked like very feminine, elegant style, but never really learned how they were done.  With the step-by-step video from Ficcare, though, I finally accomplished it! I did a decent-looking french twist in my own hair! And, for this very elegant style, what better to hold it in place, than a very elegant Maximas clip?! I still don't think my twists look as nice as they could, but I'll get there soon!

At long last...a french twist!


Like I said, the possibilities are endless with this beautiful hair clip! You can also do ponytails, partial upsweeps...just about anything! I love this piece, and will be  using this for a long time to come! It is very well-made, and I like that it is metal...not cheap plastic that will crack or break easily. I have worn this a lot in the past month, and had no problems at all!

"Indulge in our latest Jewel tone colors, never seen before! This somewhat transparent yet rich paint is just amazing. It looks like we’ve put a layer of semi-precious stone right over the metal base. It is new, fresh, and very cool!  We love them all, and there is one or two or three colors for each of you Maximas fans. The surface of the clips shows lighter and darker shades due to light reflection; use the mid point of the clip (center of the flower) as the truer color throughout the clip. The metal base is either in gold or sterling silver. Each clip comes with a free “how to use instructional brochure”. Hand made and hand painted on metal."

The Maximas clips are available in a variety of colors and designs. There are also different sizes for different hair types/lengths!  As well, Ficcare offers many other beautiful hair accessories such as ponytail holders, clips, headbands and more.



Ficcare is giving a Gold Lotus Maximas Clip to one of my readers!!
