I like the hair in the face but I can see why some people may not like it.

Hair is a distraction? Those who answered "yes" are definitely female. Those who answered, "hair? what hair?" or "... i like watermelons", etc are male.

I think you should leave it alone, it works for this shot.

IMHO... I don't mind the hair across her nose from the right, but find that the hair from the left near her chin distracting. would like to see more

Hair, or no hair, there isnt any way possible for a bad picture of her to exist.

I don't like it. However, on the good side, it's a perfect reason to ask to reshoot :-)

I actually like the way her hair is on photo.

It gives nice lifelikeness and sense of wind to photo, almost like smelling a fresh air out of it.

With the hair it is more natural, yes it can look a little messy, but the overall shot is very good.
Natural not posed look. It all was "clean" it would take away from the shot. YAE

I think her hair looks a bit too messy here.

And her shirt is too small! :lol:

I don't see hair in front of....o0o0o0o0o0o0oh. Looks great! Seriously. A lot of odd thin strands maybe but this isn't entirely over the place.

I like it. I feel sorry for her though. Poor girl probably has a hard time finding a date.

I don't want to see hair across a face unless the rest of the model's hair shows evidence of being windblown or her posture explains it--leaning forward or resting on her side, for instance. Then the out-of-place hair makes sense and doesn't look like a mistake in grooming or a coy manipulation.
