I like the composition and your B/W choice...
Um abraço

Hello (again) Les,
Your hairdresser has a strong natural aura, for sure.
I like how you made her pose here, not looking at her own reflexion in the mirror. She mainly seems to be connected with her soul. Interesting.
I also like the background bokeh that visually connects Natalie with her reflexion in the mirror, because it creates some depth. I just might be tempted to clone out the dark "spot" in the upper right corner, as I don't think it adds something to your composition (it even slightly distracts, in my opinion).
The soft contrasts (but still showing detail) are consistent with the dreamy mood of this "double" portrait.
TFS & kind regards,
