Question on fit of the Persol 649

So I recently got a pair of the 649s of the classified section. I got the smallest size, 49mm, as I have a very small head. I was hoping for a quick critique of the fit. Whether they are too small or too big for me. Having a small head I am very self-conscious of extra large eye-wear and tend to shy away from anything that could make my head look even smaller.

Please forgive the crappy cell phone pic. Thanks in advance.

649s often look huge and give the bug-eye look, but they actually look decent on you and are a good fit for your dish. Well done.
Now get thee to a barber and get a decent haircut!:D

The funny thing is my girlfriend is a hairstylist at one of the premier salons in the Twin Cities however as much as she nags I never seem to find time...

You need to button your sleeve buttons.

I don't typically comment negatively but since you're asking for an opinion, I think they're a little small. Particularly if that's how you normally wear your hair.

Everything is good in my opinion except for the hair as most here have mentioned.
