Doesnt allways solve the issue. My 16-35L has a hood but the optics are known to flare quite easily. Just composing the shot differently can eliminate flare.

best thing to do in future is use one of your spare hands to create yourself a Hand Hood lol, just put the hand to the side of the lens until the flare has gone (and hopefully out of sight of the viewfinder). or use cardboard... but it can be used for creative effect rather easily too.
