How do bald men keep kippah srugas from falling off? (not l'maaseh yet, b"h)

I got a short haircut and am having serious issues, especially in the wind!

Kippot Serugot. – Double AA Mar 22 '13 at 7:15
@DoubleAA if and when kipa s'ruga gets adopted into English as a word (and if it's spelled kippah sruga), its plural may well be kippah srugas. (I agree with you that that hasn't happened yet.) – msh210 Mar 22 '13 at 7:42
Double sided sticky tape :) – Ariel Mar 22 '13 at 8:27
@msh210 medicine?? – Charles Koppelman Mar 22 '13 at 15:32

Here is Israel, I've seen two customs (If any are also using tape I wouldn't know):

  1. Wear an extra large kippa. Perhaps it is an overcompensating aesthetic, but I have noticed many bald men wearing kippot that cover their whole heads (and even go into their foreheads). These often keep a snug fit.
  2. Wear a Buchari kippa. Seruga means knitted, so yes, this counts.
