EASIEST head to work with Lara Maitreya body?

I've never liked my classic head.

Is there such a thing as an EASY head to work with that includes all basics needed?  I'm not looking for anything fancy.  I'd need a head that is 'easy' to match skin color with on my Lara body.  And I'd like to be able to use the hair I've already purchased.

It has been stated that LeLutka heads also include Glam Affair appliers that match with those in the Maitreya HUD.  Is this true?

Deciding on a head based on the fact that the head and body use the same default skins is really the least reason to pick a head. With so many skin creators making body appliers for Maitreya and matching head appliers it's really not an issue. Find the head that you like the best. Then find demos of skin appliers, head and body, and start trying out those heads and skins until you find the best combination for you. 

The most important thing when buying a head is to first make sure it's bento so you can use as many shape sliders as possible to customize the face to your liking. Then be sure to use the hud to the point of trying to break it. Can you get comfortable with using it? Does it seem easy to use or difficult? Next, check out the animations. Do you like how the face animates? Are facial animations important to you? Once you find a head and skins that you think you'll love, I always suggest you wear that head and skin demo around your home for a couple of days testing it. You might think you love a head/skin combination at first but within a few hours or a day might realize there's just something about it that bugs the crap out of you. So, testing over time is a good idea since purchasing a mesh head and skin is an investment.

IMO Lelutka, Catwa, Genus, and LAQ are all very good quality. I use the Genus Babyface head currently and I love it.

I agree with everything Blush already said, and just want to add that first: Find a head that is close in shape to what you are aiming for, because the sliders can only do so much to change the mesh's actual shape. For example, a bento mesh head with a really pointed chin most likely isn't going to allow for a softer or more rounded chin without starting to look a little off. It's all about playing with your shape, and trying different skins too - they can drastically change your appearance as well.

And yes - demo ALL THE THINGS! :)

No demo, no sale, no exception!

 

You forgot the part about that stone being dropped onto the head of those creators who don't bother proffering demos. Most people think there are only Ten Commandments where, in truth, there are eleven. What most think is the first and most important is actually the second, because the FIRST ONE is "Thou shalt not be stupid enough to buy anything without trying a demo first."
