If you want to give your hair some lift, try Goody's Volume Boost Comb. I've experimented with several tools from the new Simple Styles line and found this one to be the easiest to use so far. The small comb is designed to give your hair a boost on top (think Brigitte Bardot, but less voluminous and more subtle) and secures your style in place. I used this comb after straightening my hair to style it half up, but it would also work well for an amped-up ponytail. You can find the tool for around $6 at Target, Wal-Mart and most drugstores. --Dana Wilson
