Definitely a cut a professional should do. If you don't want to shell out the money, I'd say pass on it. Even if you get it done by a professional, the cut is not guaranteed to "look right" and could take more work than you expect to get it to look good every day. And if you're up for the risk, absolutely have your brother do it. I think it'd look good on you and be a nice change.

Remember to look at negative spaces. I'm not sure how to explain that exactly, but think of it like this:

How far is her eye from her eyebrow? How far is her eyebrow from her hair? At what point does the curve of her brow line up with the tip of her nose (on a vertical plane)? How far right do her lips extend as seen in relation to the eyeball (vertical plane)? Those are some of the things you look at.

If you see that some part looks a bit wonky and is maybe out of proportion or just in the wrong spot a bit, turn both pictures upside down and draw from there. This usually lets you draw by seeing the spaces, not the faces. In fact, its good to alternate the direction you're drawing from. Even at a 90 degree angle from the original this will help. Just make sure to turn it back to the original orientation every now and then to make sure nothing looks to wonky.

One last thing, don't forget to be daring! Get dark with your darks. I know that you're only using a #2 pencil, but make sure the dark parts on the picture are nice and dark on your sketch. It really gives a more dramatic and finished feeling.
