Whoa, now. Back to basics. Look at the subject. What are her best features? Her eyes! She has a lovely, soft, pretty face -- but her eyes are simply bewitching. Focus on those and stop banging on about the top of her head. Tone down all the bright-bright-bright on the camera left side of her face and bring some of that light into those eyes, and also to the line of her left cheek (camera right).

Usually I like Sabrinas work but I feel you missed the mark here. The original image has a nice soft feel which you ruined. You have improved the eyes but overall its become too contrasty for me.
