boffer, those are ponytail holders, much tougher and more durable than rubber bands. I thought they would be good to hold a steady tension and be able to remove and put back on, if needed. The idea hit me while I was shaving and looked down and saw one of my wife's ponytail holders.

We'll see this summer

Only one way to find out! The nylon string will I'm sure. If the ponytail holders deteriorate from the UV I may change to some kind of springs or something. They are really cheap so if they only last a year that would be fine.
