So up until recently I've only ever played headless, my first move always being jump back and toss head or wait for them to attack and counter with the oddly decided invulnerability of tossing the head while on the ground. It's become apparent that in order to win certain matches I'm gonna have to start switching between headless and head-on more frequently. There are obvious differences that will probably be the foundation of which state is used for which situation, i.e. Headless has no hit invulnerable normals so if an opponent has an obnoxious lockdown assist it's best to go head-on unless you're focusing on zoning. These situations will likely not be solely match-up based and it's more likely that the different head states' usefulness will be determined by the playstyle of the individual. I haven't spent much time experimenting with this and have little head-on experience to compliment my headless experience so I was hoping that other people would use this thread to build a collection of suggestions and other such things about when to take the head off and when to put it back on.
