    In PS.. go to Filter > Big Head > Really big head

    Just joking.. what you need is Liquify. Go to Filter > Liquify or press Shift + Ctrl + X
    Select the expand tool, chose the correct brush size and just click on the subject's head.

    you need to decapitate (cut out) the model head, copy and paste into another layer.
    transformation it, flatten.
    than slowly using clone tool rubber stamp tool liquify tool to work on the joint till it looks perfect.
