A standing headlock or a headlock on the ground?

There are multiple ways of getting out of a standing headlock. The 'street' guys are all going to say the same thing: "HIT 'EM IN THE GROIN".

I prefer other methods (not that I'm totally against that tactic either). Arm drag out is one, a drop sweep is another (it's some judo counter throw and I can't think of it's Japanese name). The drop sweep once done, can lead you right into an arm bar.

The ground headlocks involve, turning onto your side to assist in gaining leverage. Either hooking the hip with your uppermost leg, framing up and pushing the opponent's head away then hooking it with your leg, or bridging your opponent and rolling him over -- are all viable tactics. And, you aren't going to be able to learn them from a stinking forum. Find a teacher to show them to you (join a judo, BJJ or wrestling club).

Bite his arm...

If that's not possible, dont let him get u in a headlock. If you see someone's trying to, remember they need both arms to do so.

Stick your fingers in his nosrtils or eyes then rip.or hittem in the groin. If your serious about that kind of stuss listen to JKOGAS, he knows.

If in a street scenario, wrestling someone on the ground kinda beats around the bush. Go straight for the vitals once you have an opportunity. What Chen Zen eyes, nostrils, groin.

Unless you know how, going to the ground in a street fight is suicide.

If some one has you in a head lock please dont hit them in the groin unless you would like to die.. if some one is hit in the groin they tense up, if they are chocking you (with a head lock) them tensing up is gonna kill you.
Its sorta hard to explain with out a demonstration but the correct way of getting out of a headlock is to step forward with your stronger leg and throw your weight towards it, your attacker should tumble over ( iv done this to people who weigh much more than me and it worked)

Another way to get out of headlocks that always works for me is to create a "frame". It is explained
here. Sometimes when your friends are messing around, u cant just duff them in the face or knee them in the groin.

There are three that we have been tought. I will teach you one. Your in a head lock and your opponent has you bent over cranking on your neck. First lets assume he is right handed, reach your left arm around hehind his shoulder up toward his face, your hand will now be in his facial area. Place your hand under his nose (ridge hand) and push upward. That part of your nose is very sensitive and he won't be able to stay in that position for long. As your pushing the nose in the upward motion your left leg is used to sweep his right leg out from under him. Your opponent will fall in a backward motion. This works very well, try it in class.
