What type of hat should I wear for summer running?

Topping It Off: Caps Keep You Comfortable

In warmer weather, lightweight baseball-style caps with mesh panels are the ideal sports accessory--they keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face. Some hats and visors also have built-in headbands to help absorb sweat. Most distance runners deal with excessive perspiration on their face and neck. One good tip is to wear a bandanna around your head and adjust the mesh cap on top of it. Look for caps with Velcro closures to get the best fit. Women who wear ponytails: Look for caps with the hole in the back; you can slide your ponytail through it and your hair stays out of your way.

If you don't like to cover the top of your head, a sports visor works well.

I am the creator of a new line of headbands called Violet Love. Designed as a runner, the headbands are great for woment to keep fly aways out of their face, but still want to enjoy running without having to wear a hat! In almost 100 different patterns and colors, there is something for everyone, and YES! THEY ARE WASHABLE!! The headbands fit everyone from kids to adults and multifunction as an everyday, everynight accessory, too!! I WON'T EVER RUN WITHOUT ONE AND NEITHER WILL YOU.
