Ponytails with non-Snookie poof?
 
I want to do a ponytail with some poof around the crown, just to fluff things up and keep it from being flat and boring. I like this if I cant get second day hair and dont want to wash. But as soon as I get the ponytail holder wrapped about 3 times it's all flattened down! :(
I am always afraid to backcomb but I think that's the ticket. Any suggestions or tips how to get a little volume but not look like ridiculous?

3a/3b, shoulder length and growing!

I have 3a/3b hair....I do this quite a lot. I first take the front section of my hair and use a barrette like the ones on the left in this link:
EyeCandy - Category Browse: HAIR ACCESSORIES

Using it to anchor that front top part of my hair into the poof. Then just gather up all of your hair and do a pony. Sometimes the pony will go higher than the barrette, sometimes right below...just ignore that it's there. I couldn't live without those little boogers! Use 99% of the time! I'll try to find a good pic if it helps.

Not quite snooky, but you get the point...this was more just pulling back, pinning front part back, then pony on this particular day.

I lean forward with my head upside down and sortof "scrub" my scalp area, like I would when washing. The root area loses some definition, but gains gorgeous lift! Who knew? Probably everyone but me. Lol. Anyway, after doing that, I threw a soft ponytail band in and only went around twice so it wasn't too tight. I used spin pins through the area between the ponytail band and my scalp to keep a little lift and to help distribute the weight of the pony. It isn't exactly a ponytail. But it's a pretty updo without a lot of fuss, and tends to look like a loose pony.
