Well it looks curly, but it's hard to see her hair.

Thanks for the comment!

LOL. That is true . . .

Actually this is yet another experiment . . .

Still playing around with light from the window . . . and I was experimenting with spot metering, which I don't do a lot of . . .

Looking back at the EXIF . . . I see I was at iso800 / 1/640sec . . . and could have been down around iso200 and perserve more detail . . . too.

Any tips or tricks to suggest?

Pretty young lady... and overall,a very nice shot...
A touch of fill flash maybe to lift up the shadows... if you want to... as some like quite a high contrast in these type of shots...

Looking at the original file on Flickr,there's some headroom for lifting up the shadows quite a bit...

As an available light portrait, it is very good, except perhaps for the distracting objects in the upper left.
As a way to show off her new hairdo, it is too dark. A little tone mapping for pseudo HDR look should help there.
