I first thought - from the title - that you were posting shots of the subject [seemingly] unaware that she was being photographed. But your explanation makes more sense for the thread title.
I like your photo, However, if "I wanted the affect [sic] of her peeking out from behind the hair as the theme", I don't think you succeeded, and primarily because I don't see any eye peeking out - I see only what I interpret to be eyelid. Her eyes look closed to me. This may be what JimmyD sees as well, and the reason for his comment.
My interpretation of your image is that it is a lovely young woman caught in a rather introspective moment. I don't see "coy" or "flirtaceous" aspects at all, but an almost complete lack of self-awareness or certainly a lack of awareness of being observed. Completely lost to the world, as it were. (Added in review - you don't mention any intention of flirtaceous attitude, and I don't claim to infer that you did - only that I see no such attitude in this image.]
Very different feel from your usual work, but nonetheless excellent.
Thanks for sharing.
