Getting Rid of stray Hair?

Hello everyone,

I have this image that I have photographed and retouched (skin only) but do not know how to get rid of the strands of hair that are not in the same direction as the rest of the hair (Look at upper left side (of image) of the model's hair or right next to her right ear). I think that would really help this image.
Can you please give me step by step directions on how to fix this please. I have tried "Stamp" tool, but it does not look natural. D&B alone will not fix it either. The entire skin is done using D&B and I feel pretty comfortable doing skin now, but have a very hard time with hair.

Here is the link to the image:

Thank You
Hadi

For me, The best way of going if to clone in darken mode, each individual hair following the flow of the rest of the hair.

What opacity and flow do you use for the "Clone Stamp tool" please?
Thank you

Thank you
Both at 100 % because if you use any lower you "blur" the texture of the hair and in the long run starts looking retouched.
