Here's a little trick I use if I don't have ponytail holders, or if my client's hair is medium length - too short for ponytails, but long enough to be in my way during their massage.
It's also a great way to keep from getting oil or cream in their hair.
With an open pillowcase, lay over their hair.
Fold the edges of the pillowcase under their hair, and around the sides - kind of "tucking" it in between their head and the face cradle.
