Those headbands help a lot. I only thought about using them for workouts, because I would use them to keep bangs out of face while cleaning. You don't want to be continually brushing hair out of way, transferring cleaning chemicals to hair, head or face while cleaning. Since it worked well for that and stayed in place while I cleaned (and me cleaning is almost a marathon and includes all day long cleaning and organizing) I figured it will help with my workouts.
For me, the headbands do not work without a low ponytail, but that's from the length of my hair. It is long and sways and moves when I move. If I leave it down, it will move enough that it causes the headband to move. I do not like to use bobby pins or barrettes. Otherwise, I am sure a few could help keep the headband in place.
