In brief: Probably not
People who get colds a lot often have the following in common:they are exposed to sick people (young kids or health care workers), or they have an immune system which tends to react to viral infections enthusiastically-- causing the symtpoms of a cold.
Migraines can be triggered by stress- physical or emotional, so colds or even cold meds can trigger migraines, but they have different causes.

While I don't disagree with your answer, I believe you misunderstood the question, which, as I read it, is about feeling cold and not about catching colds.

In brief: Quite possibly
There are various reasons one might get cold easily; the 1st thing i consider in someone with this is hypothyroidism & research shows that it is common in migraineurs & treating it often helps- see http://headaches.
