What to do with his tail?

I have a show coming up, and I have a POA gelding whose tail is mostly black, but it has some white strands in it (because he's spotted). It's also thin, a little bleached out at the bottom. I want it to look neater and fuller, so should I use some Shapley's touch up on it? In black? Or would it look tacky since his tail has some white strands in it?
Here's a pic just in case it helps:

It's an old pic from April, but he looks the same, except not shaggy.

You can always invest in tail extensions, they have tail extensions that are black with white strands.

I would totally do that if I showed him more, but he's still being trained for pleasure stuff so I'm not showing him much yet. Thanks!!
