You probably need a judicious bit of shadows 'n' highlights to lift the detail of her hair and her head needs to be a little higher to clearly see both eyes out of shadow. Alternatively fix this with better lighting.

Hands can be a real problem in these poses, where do you put 'em? I'd have made the framing slightly less tight and allowed both hands to show.

You have uneven light, was this taken with room lighting? A flash may have provide more detail in the hair if used. Also I would consider taking the shot not so much above the subject but slightly down and facing parallel to the subject. Also setting the aperture to a higher setting say F4 would have gone a long way to softening your BG.
