Actually I used a technique I've learned quite a long time ago thanks to one of the (great) tutorials available on the internet!

I'm really bad at explaining such things but I'll make a try:

I copied fractions of her hairdo, making 3 new layers. I used "Twirl", "Free Transform", "Curves" and "Hue/Sat" on each layer. The point of making 3 layers was to make the extentions look natural and also to prevent the digital scars. Those layers covered different parts of her hair off course.

Finally I pasted them and played around till I got the desired result. I think I spend couple of hours making the hair. I suggest you check out this link, which should be a good start:
