perhaps there is a difference. if a rubberband is not a chatziza by a man, it doesnt mean that it is not a chatziza by a woman

Response to #1

In response to #1, the English synopsis in the above article states: “It should be noted that there is no halachic need to unroll the beard before immersing in the mikvah, and indeed one should refrain from doing so to avoid sechitah.”

Rabbi Osdoba's Opinion

I believe I heard from Rabbi Osdoba that we should follow the Poskim (which include our own R’ Chaim Noeh in K’tzos Hashulchan) that one may not go out on Shabbos with a pin or rubber band in the beard, unless there is a valid Eruv.
