If by "clash" you mean "get tangled & wound around curls," then yes. I personally wouldn't risk it, but they would look classy with an updo.

If you have issues with your hair getting easily tangled in things, I could see those being a massive problem. I don't tend to wear my hair half-up or all-up if I'm going to wear fancy dangly earrings. That's just me, though. I don't think they'd clash in the sense that they'd look bad.

The earrings are curly & my hair is too, so I didn't know if it'd be overkill or what, I guess is what I was trying to ask.

But them getting tangled in my hair, which really can't be worn up because of the length, was another concern.

If your hair's shorter (as I can infer from your post above saying it can't be worn up), then the earrings may well get 'lost' in the hair, particularly if they're of a similar, er, curl pattern. Tangles are another concern, of course, but I suspect that these earrings would practically blend in. Just my opinion, though.

Actually, they might be really cute if they DO kinda "blend in" with the curls because then you would just get little flashes of silver peeking out between curls.

I like them and I don't think they'd clash at all. I think curly hair calls for more daring and bigger earrings.

Yeah, my hair is just a couple inches below my jaw in the front & nape length in back, & looks like a short Samurai warrior ponytail when worn up. I'd say the curl pattern is similar to the earrings.

Those are so cute! I would wear them, and my hair isn't quite chin length. I think they would look really nifty.

I wear ones like that fairly frequently. They do occasionally get tangled, but are mostly just lots of fun!

I think they'd look great - the shape of them really mimicks the curl.
