You may already know Love.Char through her sultry themed Instagram photos or seen LifeofLanie in one of her many YouTube vlogs and beauty videos. Separately, sisters Char and Lanie have grown and leveraged their social media platforms to explore aspects within the music and entertainment journalism industries, as far as styling on set for music videos or interning at The Fader, but their platforms have also provided interesting entrepreneurial opportunities. Char parlayed her popularity into merchandise appropriate for her cool, curly-haired lifestyle selling lighters, rolling trays, hair picks, and hair products. Lanie, on the other hand, has utilized her talent for graphic design and web development to make custom websites and banners for other social media personalities, while also designing a makeup box: Sweater Weather. Together, they have teamed up to launch FlickChix, a one-stop shop for custom lighters.
"Char and I started FlickChix because it was the perfect way to join forces. I'm a graphic designer, and Char had already been selling lighters with her pictures on it. You rarely see lighters with eye catching graphics on them, so we decided to create some with the intent of people collecting them and displaying them when the lighter fluid runs out," says Lanie.
Rather than buy another generic Bic lighter in a color you've undoubtedly had several times over, not to mention letting a friend steal it, head to FlickChix for a unique lighter experience. The sister's inaugural collection is politically charged, featuring a vintage Barack Obama and a sinister President Trump, although collections will change periodically. FlickChix also offers a custom lighter service. Perhaps you wanted your own special lighters for an event or your own brand. Customers can submit their own photos and designs, and FlickChix will create that one-of-a-kind lighter. Your shopping for dope ass lighters begins here. Spark up in style.
