When I have a ponytail I put the front and sides in one bobble then gather the bottom up and bobble slightly lower than the top. Slightly backcomb the base of the top. Looks loads better than when I put all my hair in one ponytail and you can't tell it's two
I don't have thin hair but I've a super easy bunstule that looks fancy but is really easy.
Section off 1/4 - 1/3 of your hair in a vertical section on either the left or right side of your head and clip it out of the way. Twist the remaining hair into a mid-low bun at the centre back of your head and secure with a bobble. Take the hair you left out and twist it, then take it over and around the bun as many times as it will go. Secure with a Kirby grip or 2. Job done.
I gather my hair into a mid-height ponytail, give it a single twist from underneath (as if starting a twist bun). Clip the twist from underneath, then allow the length of the pony to fall over the clip. It gives the pony a bit of oomph, and if you use a small-ish subtle clip you barely see it.
I saw a messy bun tutorial earlier. I will try to explain.
Put your hair into a high ponytail. Slide the bobble down the pony just enough to part the hair below and then flip the pony through the hole. We used to call it a topsy tail when I was a kid. Push the bobble back up through the hole slightly so that the hair comes into a bun. Use pins to secure it all. It works and looks fab.
