Actually, you can create a fabulous bumped ponytail without a bump-it or without teasing. And, you can do it in about three minutes. This is a great method for those of you who like the bumped ponytail look but have little time to create it.
The trick is to tighten the ponytail and then use your fingers to “bump” your hair up a bit after the ponytail has been secured. This gives you the perfect “lift” and you can do this with hair of all lengths. Bumps are very attractive, especially with ponytails and they help you to create a bit more depth than if you just wore a plain ponytail.
You really don’t have to buy those bump-its or tease your hair until it frizzes in order to get the bump look. This is a great way to achieve that look without taking forever to fix your hair every morning.
I hate to be a naysayer, but this technique doesn't work well! It's really difficult to pull the right amount of hair out in the right shape once the hair is already in a ponytail. I've tried this and it never ends up right. I always end up using another tried and true technique.
Hi can you help me with the other technique you use please.
Thank you so much for sharing?? Gonna try this tomorrow ??

very cute, I'm going to give it a go.
Sorry but I agree with Amanda, at best what your describing would give you either a frizzball or some uneven and misshapen "bump" at least that's all i'd get.
I recommend just pulling back your bangs or the hair at your crown, no further down than the top of your ears tie it securely semi tight. Then just pull the hair tie slowly just a tiny bit with your hand flat holding the hair so it stays even. How far down you pull the hair tie determines the size of the "bump" then hold at the hairtye and place it (don't tighten but just pick up and nicely place) however high back up to where it started. pin and done. a little bit of hairspray doesn't hurt either. Plus it's perfectly even, centered and you get to control how big/wide/tall etc. your bump is.
Anyway I never comment on blogs and stuff so that's just my two cents, hope it semi makes sense and can maybe help somebody out there.
This was perfect! Worked the first try, I can't believe how easy it was, even with a plain hair tie! Thank you so much, I have been earching for soemthing just like this!
