Big curly crazy hair but barren back

Okay, so I have a special event coming up this week and been playing around with my hair gel recipe and technique to get bigger hair (since I'm low density). I over conditioned and weighed down my hair/pulled out curl, but still got my hair to be big and poofy, like this:

I used ice queen and diffused upside down too. It leaves this barren spot in back of my head. I could fool the camera by positioning my hair like this:

However, people seeing me in person are going to see this in back:

When I try to pull back my hair that flipped forward to the back, I get separated ramen noodles and lost curl (though in part it could be that I made my gel a little too sticky, slightly too much protein). It's partly the gel that is making my hair bigger, and partly the technique. If I give up the whole upside down thing I won't have as good clumps or volume. But I also want my hair to be acceptable in back. Any suggestions? I'm getting down to the wire so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
