After reading this thread I had a bout of deja-vu. I looked up flexi-8 again, realized the styles are just not for me (for the 2nd time), and then once again stumbled upon Ficcare. Their accessories get rave reviews, and are considered a lifetime investment, but good god are they expensive! However, I am now convinced I need a barette and a headband
Most of the Long Haired Community loves their clips. Apparently the pieces really are worth it because of the quality, although in my opinion for the price they should be made of solid gold! The styles totally have me sold though.

I'm about to search NC for more opinions, I know there are threads about the line. Please let me know if anyone has anything from them that they love or hate!
