I think I know what you mean but can't find a picture. You need long thick (or not thin) hair with plenty of texture. I used to be able to do it when I had long hair <cries>. You make a loose pony tail on top of your head and pull the hair half through it so you have a loop, then fan the loop out and pin it wherever it needs pinning. It doesn't flop if you have dirty hair with 'grip'.
If you've got the length maybe you can fake it? Lots of product, hairspray, mattifying wax, don't wash it for a few days.. But if you've got lovely silky hair with no grip it might be tricky. Mine is wavy and turns into dreadlocks after two days if I don't wash or brush so it stays where I put it.
I would love the hair of a crone. I have the hair of a small child- feels nice, but really fine and silky, doesn't hold any sort of shape or style, dead straight, and sticks limply to my head with any sort of product. Oh and incredibly static.
I do it with one bobble and a couple of kirby grips. You make a hig pony tail and then before you pull all the hair through on the second "round" you stop...and pull it out as though it were a normal tail.
