Default Topknots: to do or not to do?

I'm trying to let my standard 8.5 month olds topknot grow out. It's like letting our bangs grow out. I'm new to poodles so HELP! How do you transition to letting them grow out? What do you use? She's a 'Tom girl' and we are in the country so she runs through the woods, weeds, etc. We may not survive the trip.

Start putting up in bands. In the transition start with horns, a band of hair over each eye. As the TK get's longer you band with 1 centered between the eyes.
