    This one headband I wear has beads in it and you put it in water and still like 10 days later it's really cool it locks up all the moisture

    I just play with no hat, no glasses. It helps in getting used to the conditions, and learning to serve into the sun only makes you a better player ;)

    Hat all the way, backwards if I'm playing real seriously. I know I'm badass.

    Backwards hat, no glasses. I can't stand to have anything in my field of vision.

    If I am teaching, or just having a casual hit, then I might wear the hat forwards, but never when playing.

    Simple practice in this weather will make you used to it. Hats for those who prefer them, I personally don't like to wear a hat but it's just preference. Don't wear shades though.
