Y/N: men wearing headbands (for athletics)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
ABSTRACT: I'm a guy who sweats during sports and needs a solution, can I & how do I wear a headband?

FULL: I am a guy, when I work out or play tennis, I start to sweat quite a bit (I'm not fat, its just how it happens). I tried wearing hats forward and backward but it doesn't do anything but keep the sweaty hair out of my eyes and make me sweat even more. So I just bought a nike swoosh athletic headband.

Now that I have it I am not sure how to, or if I can wear it. A lot of people outside of this forum are saying it is a very feminin, emo look, but I figure if it is for sports it might be different. The other issue is I have medium length hair, so it is tough. My hair is about like this, maybe a little shorter:

Now, how can I wear a headband, or should I not. Thanks.



(Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, I did a lot of searches and found nothing on this topic.)

Yes IF your last name McEnroe or play forward for the Miami Heat!

Gotcha, thanks for that... So what do you suggest as an alternative IF neither of those statements are true?

Use a towel, or your sleeve.

I sweat a lot in my face. Sports are not really the place to worry too much about your appearance but you don't need to look like a tramp either. It will be met with derision on here but form follows function. Do a Brett Michaels with a bandana and be done with it.

Towel, yes but only in between matches. Sleeve, no, always short sleeve drifit polos.

For tennis try a wrist band or an arm band instead. For working out use a towel provided by your gym, or buy your own...

So I take it the general consensus is to not wear a headband if you are a guy.

I got a few Nike bandanas for tennis: Hopefully it'll get to be 10-15 degrees warmer out here so I can go hit some tennis balls again. oh it's been so long!

Old school terry cloth headbands can look really cool.

As someone already mentioned, at some point, fashion has to take a backseat to function/form (within reason of course).

If you need a headband to keep the sweat out of your eyes while playing sports, find one that's not outlandish, and wear it.

I wear beanies by under armor, pretty much all the time that I am sweating.

I wear headbands like the OP's just about every time I go to the gym. Much more comfortable and less annyoing than having to constantly wipe your face on a towel or your shirt.

Indeed.
