What material should headwear be made of?

The shortest answer is, from a natural one. Cotton is very suitable as a material for this purpose, but recently anti-allergenic and antibacterial linen has come back into vogue. Linen material with a smooth surface and particular gloss is characterized by its high durability and does not accumulate electrostatic charges.

While cotton is the best for protecting UV, these hat materials will keep your head the coolest because they are the most breathable. Cotton, straw, linen, and polyester. Hats with perforations or vents help circulate the air and let in the breeze.

Which are the best hats that protect you from the sun?

They should have broad or wide brims that spread around the hat. So the best hats that protect 360-degree of your skin are Cowboy and Straw hats. Bucket, Legionnaire, Fedora. Baseball hats are great visors and protection for the face but don’t protect your neck and ears.  

Can a hat block UV?

The sun-safe hat will protect your face, head, neck, and ears. A hat can reduce the amount of UV radiation by 50%, which is enough to protect the skin from damage. A sun-safe hat needs to have a  broad brim that can cover your head, face, and neck, close-weave material, and good ventilation.
