Charcoal drawing

Here is an 18" x 24" charcoal drawing I've finished today:

This is a drawing of a woman who lives only 7 blocks away from me. I might add to the contrast of her hair, but it's not easy to show blond hair in a black and white drawing.. and the lower legs seem to be needing more smoothing.

More of my drawings can be seen here:

So I finally got around to dreading my hair up - they're nearly a week old now. I'm just wondering how other people have done the rubber bands on their tips. I'll be spending some time in a kayak (tomorrow night, and usually once a week or so), so they'll probably get soaking wet, so I definitely need to tie up the ends somehow. Just wondered how other people have done it - just an inch from the end like for plaits? Or do you fold/scrunch the tip up first? I've tried a method I saw on the dreadhead site, using two rubber bands, but I couldn't get it to work - can anyone help? :)
