Do you guys wear hats?

I'm always having customers tell me I should wear a hat. Hats at work drive me crazy... always having to take it off to wipe the sweat away. But I'm thinking about putting up with it anyway. What type of hats do you wear?

I were hats, and ear muff style hearing protectors. I do this so I can listen to music or I would go with the in ear style. It is hot, but you get used to it. I were regular baseball style hats, but did purchase some of the full brim hats awhile back and keep telling myself I should start wearing them. The back of my neck was burnt, but now it's turned to tan. I might go dig those full brim hats out anyway just because I should.

I have short hair, so I wear hat to keep my scalp from burning
I hate the ball cap type hats so I wear am old (regular)fashion type

Sweat -- ever hear of a sweat band ( I buy these by the dozen )

Hat + sweat band + ear protection = may look stupid , but making the money ( imagine lifting money)

I almost always wear a hat, for the reasons above, and it keeps my hair somewhat clean. Better than messy hair!

I wear a hat as often as I can. The big straw rimmed type, Ones with holes on the top are best. im losing my hair and the sun beats on my noggin and burns it.

Yeah, I may go with the sweatbands. My ponytail gets in the way with a brimmed hat.

Oh yeah. Most of the winter I don't wear a hat but as the sun here in Phoenix gets warmer I put one on. Like the other guys I've got short hair and a shortage of hair - so a ball cap does keep the sun off my head. I'd imagine that I will have on a straw hat here soon as we're already in the 90's.

I wear a Fedora and a tank top, drives the woman wild.
Seriously, I bought a uniform so to speak today. Tan, Dickies cargo shorts 19.99 each and red polo style shirts 10.00 on sale both at Kmart. I also wear a baseball cap and hearing protection. I have a double curse, I am balding and have hearing loss from my job as a fireman (sirens and power tools). I have worn hearing protection my entire adult life but still have significant hearing loss. WHAT!!!!! thought the wife was calling me.
