Infront of a mirror get the movements right, then incorperate it into your shadow boxing. Partner drills are good too, one guy firing out a jab with other guy slipping etc.

But the best....sparring 'you the don't move your head the other guy will'....f you can't put it into your work in the ring then it doesn't matter how much you practise.

A slip line is also good. It will get the movements down and get you throwing combinations after the slip.

That's how I do it with my coach and sparring partner.

The slip line is a good drill too, I use the slip line, drills with my coach, selected drills with the pads, sparring and my own mirror work, they all go towards helping me in fights.

Is your technique as good as it could be? In my experience, good technique will provide the best platform, followed by repetition during drills, shadow boxing, tech sparring and open sparring. Compromised technique usually guarantees failure.

Maybe this video on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] might help? Let me know what you think or whether you have any questions back here.

I've seen guys at my gym use the speed bag to practice slipping.

Hit the bag, get in close, slip the bag...repeat.

footwork. move your feet, the head will follow. practice pivoting on the balls of your feet.. your head will slip to either side. same with shifting your weight front rear foot to lead foot and back.

This is a very good drill if you have a partner. Since you are trying to improve head movement then do that instead of blocking, same principle. Start off slow and gradually build up the speed. If you do this drill then make sure that your partner isn't crowding you, make him stay at the end of his range (he can only hit you with full extension of his punches)

A starting point is to put a bit of tape on the mirror as a point to slip or use a slipline and shadowbox while ducking under it. Get your partner to throw some shots at you to get the movement right.

What you want to start practising is slipping before or after punches and then in between as though in a drill then pivot out back into safe range(and staying in form). eg- slip-1-2. 1-2-duck-3. Get them together and practise in front of a mirror or in a ring.

That is something a coach will to watch though to get all the best tips.

EDIT-
Not a boxer but give it a chance, I think this fedor clip gives a very good discussion about slipping.

get someone to throw jabs at you and practise slipping them. The other guy gets to work on his jab and you get to practise slipping, parry. Then do the same with the 1-2 combo. I usually parry the jab and slip the right hand or cross block. It teaches you to read punches and time them.

I've improved my head movement immensely over the summer, just because it's something I chose to focus on while I was injured.

The way I went about it was:

1) find a pro boxer with a similar style to you and see how they slip. Different styles use different slipping techniques. For example, Tyson's peekaboo style used alot of flexing at the waist and legs.

2) Incorporate the technique into shadowboxing. You shouldn't wait for punches to slip them, the chances are you'll get hit more often than not. You should make slipping a part of most of your combinations and slip pre-emtively in a way that sets up another punch for you.

3) use a training aid such as the 'pendulum' ball used by tyson. You can pretty easily make one out of sand, a plastic bag and duct tape. Focus on using the same movement you've been working on and slip using the same range of motion. (the pendulum bag should be around the size of a 16oz boxing glove to make sure it accounts for the fact you'll be wearing headgear)

4) move on to partner drills/ arranged sparring. ie. Your partner can only throw straight shots/hooks etc.

5) move on to full sparring.

*knowing your range is a BIG part of slipping effectively. You want to be able to now when you can be hit and when you can hit your opponent.
