Like previous post-TMP Klingon designs, it stays true to what came before while giving it a fresh slant. Although it's starting to look like there's a pattern of familiar Trek aliens becoming bald in the Abramsverse.
Also neat that they kept the classic Klingon trefoil insignia.
And before anyone asks, there's no continuity error here. ENT: "Divergence" established that only a percentage of the Klingon population lost their ridges to the Augment virus. Indeed, I'm wondering if they later adopted the masks as a way of equalizing the two types of Klingon, so that one couldn't tell whether another Klingon was ridged or not.
Hmm. I've always thought that hair (wearing it in certain ways, braiding etc) was an integral part of the Klingon "makeup", though.
