You need some kind of cloaking device.

Severed or still attached? wink

You can do it in compositelab, not sure if there's a way using only effectslab, as you'd need to have a clean background plate and be able to mask out the head in the top plate.

I recommend shooting the scene with a headless dummy, or use a cut.

Completely transparent? Well, you could simply NOT have your actor standing in the shot...


Not sure I get what you want...
