Are you using it because you sweat a lot? If that's the case, just type sweatband on amazon.com and buy one of the highly rated ones. They should be way better than overpriced butterfly products and that thing doesn't even look like it'll absorb much sweat at all (made with Polyester...).

If you want to wear headband as a fashion statement, please don't because they look tacky.

Hahaha 3 out 4 kids below 13 in my area uses this type of headband during tournaments. I really like the Karate Kid vibe.

In addition, you can buy one for around 1.5 euros from aliexpress. I bought something like 15 of them two years ago, and they’re still working fine. I sweat a lot, so I needed the high-absorption towel-like ones.

I recommend halo headband, it redirects the sweat to the side of your face so they don't drip over your eyes and cause a burn. Plus those absorbing type headbands aren't that useful since it can only absorb that much, and after it fills up with sweat it won't help anymore.

I remember the days I used the towel like headbands at high school. The problem was during topspin I may hit the headband, it sometimes change its position and I feel like I should adjust and it sometimes drop to eye level in the game :D This happened many times during playing basketball too :) Then I stopped wearing them.

I remember in one imterview Timo was asked why the headband. It was something like he had changed his haircut and wanted to have longer hear, so the headband prevents hairs going too low and obstructing eyesight

I sweat really a lot when training hard (or running) so that sweat gets into my eyes and I can't see properly anymore.

There comes the HALO hairband that i mentioned above has some particularity. It includes a tight piece of rubber which absorbs all the sweat and prevent it from going into your eyes. Its very effective and so useful in my case. There are many different models to choose from, i highly recommend it !

I have to admit, it will be mostly a fashion statement :D I like the warrior look. And Timo is playing better since he wears it, so I'm hoping for quick results ;) (just kidding)

Thanks for the information guys. But I don't think they look like the ones Timo wears...
