Regarding the color toning and contrast in particular, the problem I ran into with the balding guys is, not only did I get a reflection, but the faces and the bald-spot reflections were heavily yellowed (combination of overhead fluorescent lights and the card-diffused flash) and stayed somewhat yellow even when the rest of the image looked comparatively balanced. I tried to cut back on the jaundiced look by de-saturating and de-contrasting quite a bit, but maybe went too far?
