16x20 On Linen board - I don't paint light hair much as I'm not so sure how to mix the colors for a lighter hair like blonde.. I've asked some people and it seems to be a big secret... LOL  Can some one help with this.

well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

add a shadow of the bird onto the lady, that will make it stand out nicely O0

There is no secret to painting blonde hair. You just need to carefully observe the colours. Sometimes the base is yellow ochre and white, other times it is burnt sienna and white, other times raw umber and white. Do little experiments on the palette to see which colour gets you in the right direction, then adjust from there O0
