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!

    @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.)

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.
