HOW do you band an Appy mane!?

I was told that I should start banding my pony's mane for shows. He has the thin mane typical in Appaloosas (he's half POA and half Appy, reg. POA though!) and, in places, it sticks straight up.
HOW do you band this? It seems nearly impossible considering his mane's not more than 5-6 inches at the longest point and very thin.
Any ideas?

Is it common in Western shows to roach it? Some people get offended at the idea but that's what we plan on doing with the thin POA mane on one of our mares.
