Swap face, not whole head. Easier in this situation. I've done hundreds.

That's usually wut I do too. But his head is OOF from moving so it might look odd.

I dunno...i think it looks weird...i matched his eyes up but had to extend his mouth/chin because the base image was longer due to him opening his mouth.

Try converting it to B&W. Might take away all your color problems.

...the challenge is to get the color balance, brightness and contrast, and color saturation of the inserted face to match any of the pre-existing skin which is visible in the receiving photo!
Relatively easier to do this when shoot an event and color balance, brightness and contrast, and color saturation are pretty consistent from one shot to the other, to replace a less than satisfactory facial expression on one person who shows up in multiple shots. Shoot in different lights on different days at different exposures, and skin tone matching so you can splice in the face to adjacent skin is quite challenging! NONE of us who have posted the entire head have made the gentleman's head seem to fit well with color balance, brightness and contrast, and color saturation of the receiving shot, so far.

No but someone without a trained eye for these things doesn't seem to care and is thrilled with the image produced. You guys have gone out of your way to help me help someone else and I thank you all for that.

My Submission. When its heads in different conditions, it becomes more of a composite situation than a simple head swap.
