I have curly hair, so can't wear hats as my hair goes flat.

But I have cold ears! Help me!

If you have cold ears then wear them! They dont need to be big in your face ones. I dont personally see why not!

You could also go for something like this:

This is gorgeous:

I wear them, I have some furry ones from River Island. They are similar to the first ones Green liked to.
I'm currently crocheting a band like her third link.

Interesting.... Thanks for the replies. I'm still a bit worried that the headbands will give me a flat head / frizz but might be worth a punt!

I have some sheep skin ones to wear in new york. I look stupid in hats as I have a weak jaw but have ear problems so figure they are sexier than an ear infection.

I have curly hair. The eternal hat dilemma. In 2008 those New Yorkers made then look so good I took the plunge and haven't look back!

I have behind the head style ones like these:

If you wear your hair down, you can barely notice them (unless you have short hair that is). I get dreadful ear pain in cold weather and hats flatten my already flat/thin hair as well as make me sweat, so if it's chilly or windy, I bung these on.

Earbags do the trick for me- I have not had an earache since I got mine a couple of years ago <jinxes self>
