Since it's your first head here's some tips:

Don't stare yourself blind on the side and front view. Actually the model should'nt match up exactly with the refs, because the photos are a bit distorted by the perspective from the camera.

Get more photos of heads in different angles.

About your head:

Neck is to wide.
Nose is to wide.
Skull has wrong shape.

IMO you have to much geometry, ive make misstakes like this when i just started modeling heads, i found out that the best way is just to restart, at least for me, i pretty much came up with my own way for starting out heads and stuff, i shape out the nose, mouth, chin, and the rest of the head (but not the ears) and then i just model the eyes and then the mouth, along with the nose at the same time.

Other then that its not to bad for the first model of a head.
