    I have no clue how people get it to work on figure 8's they catapult out of mine.
    The trick with the millenium when you have a large bun like the fig 8 is not to insert it from outside the bun. Instead, wiggle your way into the hole in the top loop of the 8 and drive the clip in from there. Added bonus is the millenium's feather shaped hinge end will be holding back the top part of your fig 8 and not high enough on your head to give the indian pow-wow look.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll try that. I tend to avoid anchoring that through the hole in the top loop as that gets awfully balanced results with stick and forks for me.

    You folks rock, by the way. Keep them coming!
    Ah... ........so ermm.....you probably didn't need a list of all the styles I *can't* do with a ficcare then huh?

    The only style I can do right now is a french twist. I haven't tried doing anything else. I have the medium maximus ficcare.

    I use sticks for my figure 8s, but I make mine upside-down (and at an angle, but that's beside the point) -- start very high, then flip the top loop down.

    I don't do a lot of experimenting with styles these days. I have a large Ficcarissimo, large Max and medium Max. I use the two larges for infinity buns and cinnamon buns. Those are the two styles I wear just about every single day. I use the medium for infinity buns (getting it positioned is tricky because it's so little) and half-up twisty things when my hair's still drying.

    Very, very good idea for a thread.
    Wish I had one to try out styles that would work for it.
