Halo Removal

One way to prevent Halos is to shrink the selection a few pixels if you have selected the subjects first. Then you invert the selection and delete the background and a little bit of the edges of the subject. That usually keeps the halos from forming.

Another way is to select Select/modify/border which selects the edges of a selection and copy that to a new layer and use multiply blending mode. That will darken the edge of the selection.

If the background is already deleted, Nancy's suggestion should work fine.

Just a couple of tips if you want to use the magic wand followed by expanding the selection. After you expand the selection, you should also feather it appropriately to get a smooth transition from background to subject. You'll have to experiment a bit to get the right amount of expansion and feathering.

However, I think simply expanding the selection won't quite work here because there are varying amounts of halo and you will have to erode the subjects to get it all. Something that might have helped this would be setting the magic wand for discontiguous selection so you can get down in between the strands of hair or get to portions of background that are isolated.
