I am doing a mailing to a few CD's and was wondering what headshot would be best. My acting range is 16-22.

Definitely not that stupid "over the shoulder" one. Those DON'T help you!
And you do know that sending unsolicited envelopes to CDs is a waste of money.
1. Casting is online. They spend more time looking at tiny thumbnails than opening envelopes.
2. Most of the addresses listed are CSA Mailboxes that they hardly check.
3. A headshot and resume are NOT enough for someone to bring you in. You better have a damn good reel/clip library.
I agree with @truthteller59 -- not a fan of the over the shoulder. Honestly, if I HAD to pick one, i would say the one looking straight into the camera.
Though neither bring out your potential in my opinion.
I also think you should be submitting your headshots online, way better/faster.
