Banding the face hair does two things:
1. Keeps it out of stuff.
2. Keeps it from breaking off.
Jonathan likes to rip at Mikey's face hair, so I often keep Mikey's face banded.
Multiple bands in the top knot is just practicality. When it gets to a certain length, you need to band multiple sections to hold it all back.
Wrapping, if the dog leaves them in and it is done right, encourages coat growth because it saves the ends of the coat. Many dogs like it and don't mind it at all as it is sort of like a puppy cut without the clipping. For many show dogs who damage their hair running around, wrapping protects it.
Lemme get a picture of M partially wrapped...
Back half of him wrapped from a few years ago.

I change all bands and redo the top knot daily when I brush. They stay in all night.
I use small scissors and cut that bit of hair off. Mikey gets some that comes over his nose similarly and I cut that, too.
