A lot of body heat escapes from the head. Keep the head warm in cold weather and the body regulates its warmth better. When the body is cold, it is my understanding that it regulates blood flow keeping nearer the body core to protect vital organs, therefore your extremities fingers, toes, ears, will have get cold.
Now, I don't stand around outside in the middle of February in Chicago much, but I do notice with a hat, I am warmer. Perhaps someone with knowledge in human physiology can explain this phenomena better than I.
