Styling back of hair?

I have a hard time styling the back of my hair. Most of the time when I'm done styling my hair, I notice that I don't even end up getting any product in the back of my hair and the back of my hair it still ends up being a frizzy/poofy mess with no curls basically. Or when I do end up getting some product back there it just looks frizzy and gross, and my curls just look bad.. because I can't see what I'm doing so I can't carefully apply the product. And when I diffuse, the same thing happens.. because I can't see what I'm doing in the back of my head so when I try to diffuse the back of my hair it just ends up being frizzy and gross. I'm tired of the front of my hair looking nice but the back ends up looking horrible! So how do you guys style the back of your hair so it ends up looking nice??

    I part my hair on the side and style my hair one side at a time. Then I check the back with a mirror to see if I missed anything. That's really the only way I can do it since my hair is long.
