Red face Straight hair image, how does this look?

I was sort-of inspired by the scanned look, or how shall I name it. It is a composite, meaning that some hair was added from another image, but majority is original.

It took me something in the range of 3.5 hours to "complete" this.

So what do you guys think/see?

P.S. I know it ain't a kaboom image, it was done for a models portfolio...

The compositing seems very convincing. Which parts of the hair are taken from another source?

I just took sample from upper portion of the hair from one of the other images, and warped them a bit to align the flow.

Pretty kaboom job on the hair, though. As capice said, fingertips a bit red. Only comment on the hair (except wow) is that there a bit of color crossover. For a hair job (which is what it looks like), client would probably be very picky on hair color consistency and tone. It varies a bit from a blonde-ish to a strawberry blonde.
