Re: Removing Background

You can remove hairs using colour range very easily. Just make a rough selection around ladys hair, pick out the colours you want to remove & here you go. You have perfect selection of hairs. Also, you an make use of Softwares Like Corel Knockout & Extensis Mask Pro.

Re: Removing Background

May be you can use calculations (blending two channels) to create a good mask and then extract the subject, I think it'll work on this image.
