Athletes Love Suddora Headbands
Any athlete will tell you that vision and hand-eye coordination are incredibly important in sports. You can’t put a price on these basic skills that are essential to your game.
It doesn’t matter if you play basketball, football, tennis, or volleyball, you need your eyes to be effective. This is one of the main reasons why sports teams love using Suddora’s premium headbands while they’re playing.
Getting sweat in your eyes doesn’t just burn, it can also cause you to make mistakes at the most critical times. Take basketball for example.
If you’re trying to pass the ball to a teammate who has a scoring opportunity, or you’re about to take the game-winning shot, you’re going to be in trouble if there’s sweat in your eyes and you can’t see. By wearing a headband you can be sure you’ll never have to worry about your vision during a big game.
And what about if you’re playing tennis? Every little, tiny, minuscule detail matters when playing a sport as quick as tennis. Whether its doubles or singles, the pace is blazing fast. Even if your vision is compromised for a second its game, set, match – you’re done. This is why if you look at nearly any pro tennis player you will see they’re wearing a thick sports headband.
If you’re serious about always performing at your best you need to wear a sports headband. We offer a variety of styles and colors that will not only stop your sweat but also keep you looking great.

Who invented the headband?
Decorative headbands have been around since the ancient Greeks, dating as far back as 475 BC. In those times, headbands were made of wreaths from olive branches and their original use was a prize handed out at the original Olympic games.
In later years, the Romans would adopt headbands. They decorated theirs with gold, silver, and other precious metals and would wear them for a number of special occasions.
Headbands lost popularity as a fashion item in the middle ages, but they had a resurgence in the 1800s. They were especially popular among women during this time, who would decorate them with feathers, flowers, and other items.
It wasn’t until the 1940s that athletes started using headbands to reduce sweat.
Tennis player Fred Perry began wrapping medical gauze around his right wrist to keep sweat from getting on to the handle of his tennis racket, and to help wipe the sweat from his brow. Eventually, he was approached by Australian footballer Tibby Wegnar who had the idea to mass-produce sweatbands for athletes. The two partnered up and came up with their first prototype, which was a huge hit among tennis players and other athletes.
These wristbands eventually spawned the headbands we know today, which help absorb sweat and keep it out of your eyes.
When did headbands become popular?
As we’ve discussed, headbands have been a popular fashion accessory throughout time.
Starting in the 1940s, after the first sports headbands were invented, they became extremely popular among tennis players and later basketball players. Headbands continue to be a popular accessory for all of the world’s best tennis players.
And while they briefly went out of style in basketball, headbands have made a comeback thanks to stars like Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony regularly sporting them during games.
As a fashion accessory, sports headbands became popular in the late 70s and early 80s. Just like basketball, they went out of style briefly but are now becoming more and more popular once again.
Today, you can find a number of people wearing them, both for their sweat-absorbing abilities and to enhance their look.
What sports are headbands used for?
Headbands can be good for all kinds of sports.
They are probably most widely associated with tennis, due to virtually all high-profile tennis players wearing them during their matches. Tennis requires an extremely high amount of hand-eye coordination, so it’s understandable that top players wear headbands to make sure sweat stays out of their eyes.
Basketball is another sport where headbands are prevalent. Players initially started wearing them strictly for their sweat-absorbing abilities, but they were later adopted as a fashion accessory and a way for players to express themselves out on the court.
Many runners also utilize headbands. Runners are constantly moving, and when you combine this with being out in the hot sun it leads to a lot of sweat. This is why a number of runners count on headbands to keep sweat out of their eyes so they can focus on performing at their highest level.
These are just a few examples of sports that headbands can be used for. Pretty much any time you’re doing anything that makes you sweat headbands are an excellent choice.
Headbands vs durags vs hats vs sweatbands. What’s the difference?
There are a number of different head accessories these days. So, what’s the difference?
When we talk about headbands, we’re referring to sports headbands or sweatbands worn by a large number of athletes. But as we’ve already discussed, headbands can come in a number of different varieties.
Whether its the olive branch wreaths of ancient Greeks, the decorative headbands of the 1800s, or the colorful silk headbands of the 1960s counter culture movement, headbands have taken many shapes and forms.
Today's decorative headbands are mainly used as a hair accessory for women. They’re generally used to hold air back but can also be adorned with patterns, bows, and other looks.
Durags are a thin cloth wrapped around the head that emerged in African American culture in the 1930s. They were initially used by men to keep their chemically processed hair intact while they slept. Durags re-emerged in the 1990s as a fashion accessory and are now worn by both men and women.
Hats have been around virtually since the dawn of time. They come in an endless amount of shapes and designs and serve a number of different purposes, including fashion, protection, and ceremonial purposes.
The main thing that separates sports headbands and sweatbands from these other accessories is their ability to absorb sweat. While other items worn on the head can help with sweat, no other accessory is as good at absorbing sweat and keeping it out of your eyes as a headband.
