    You can wear a hat, tie your hair back, or wear a headband.

    Get a mullet type cut. You'd be down with Nadal, Moya, and Coria.

    If your hair gets in the way and effects your play - and tennis is important to you - then you know the answer - haircut...Good Luck...

    I know you said besides getting a hair cut .... but that is exactly what I did. I have a full head of hair but decided to get a buzz cut. No more hair into the face issues. :)

    Eagle,
    So I guess your nickname should be the Bald Eagle...

    not quite bald as in mj or agassi.

    more the andy roddick cut during davis cup last year.

    but give it time, i'm sure the bald eagle nick will be a perfect fit. :)

    Get yourself a white Lacoste hat. Wet your hands, run your fingers through your hair. And put your white Lacoste hat on backwards. It'll stay put.

    Ps your link is broken.

    Dab a little Pommade in hair at the sides (just a little amount..should do it) if your not into caps.. find a funky Bandanna an put that on .. that way your hair won't be messed up an you still can still play tennis ;) good luck..

    Diredesire:step away from the hairband..no hairband.. another of my suggestions is just wet your hair an put on a cool Bandanna.. that way your head will stay cool an you'll look cool too;) (Bandannas Rule)

    I don't understand why a hat doesn't fix the problem for you. But all of your options have been covered: 1)HAIRCUT. 2)Hat. 3)Bandana w/the wetting possibilities. There are also different ways of wearing a bandana. You could wear it ala Federer or ala pirates, but Federer seems to have a similar problem sometimes with having to keep pulling the small tufts back into place.

    Most of the choices have been taken but if you wear a hat and your hairs still bugging you and you don't want to go with a bandana (which are really cool) you can still wear the hat normally and just use hair clips or pins they come in all sorts of colors you are bound to find some in your hair color so they won't show as much.

    you cant be serious with this type of question! your asking hundreds of people on what to do with your own hair? if it bothers you this much cut cut cut cut it off. if your not willing to cut it dont bother asking. use what your parents gave you and judge on the right choice for yourself.
