Yes! The tried-and-true trick is nothing new, but it definitely works and can be adapted for many different hair lengths, types, and textures. I have shoulder-length hair now but I wish I knew about this hack when I had a bob last summer and missed tying it up in the heat. Another plus is that the technique will help take the pressure off your scalp if you have very thick hair or a lot of it. Traditional ponytails end up pulling and becoming painful after a short while, but as the hair is split into two manageable sections, it feels a lot more comfortable to wear.
