As an alternative to the hair which has white, grey and who knows what else, you could assume that his pants are an almost perfect neutral grey and that the dark part of his belt is black. That just leaves the highlights which aren't far off from my measurements but the highlite picker on the whites of the man's striped shirt will work.
To tweak out the rudiness go to Layers: Adjustments: Selective Colors and reduce the magenta.

Thanks for answering Sylvia's blur question.
CS2 adds even more blurs

Here's a very similar tutorial:
http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=54

You can find out what the average color is by resizing down to 1x1 pixel with bicubic resampling turned on, sample the pixel, then undo. Then you can fill a layer with that color and continue on from there.

I was referring to "AVERAGE" color found in Edit/Blur/Average on previous post. In this picture it is obviously a shade of green. I had already found the Average color and then found that the hair most closely resembled it when using the color picker (for those PS versions that don't have Edit/ Blur/Average).
This method is not to be confused with using the pickers in Levels or Curves to capture highlight, grey point and shadows.

Thanks cspringer. I did understand your post but sometime later came back and just picked up on your first line. Sorry 'bout that, I use Average Blur quite a bit also, I don't think anyone had commented yet on a couple of fairly obvious black and grey points in the pants and belt. The one thing though that I often get using the Average method is a rather dull pic which needs some umph with curves. Not sure if anyone else has found that.

Cheers
Dave
