Tight and tidy hair?

Ladies with thick hair: what do you use to put your hair up? I'm looking for techniques and products that will reliably hold long, thick hair for hours at a time.

My 9-year-old daughter has very thick, long hair (about 4 inches past her shoulders). On school days we usually put it in a tight ponytail, sometimes 2 pigtails, or occasionally 2 braids. But all of these come out or come apart at some point during the day. Sometimes I also add a headband or clips, but haven't found any that work REALLY well. Any good products or techniques for keeping her hair neat AND tight? I use hairspray on her occasionally, but I'd like to avoid daily use of that, for obvious reasons.
