Jody, hope you don't mind my pointing out a trick to you. I didn't do that good of an extraction myself but Refine Mask does a pretty adequate job with little effort. In order to demonstrate what I am talking about, I took your image and overlaid it with the original. I then used the Quick Selection tool to select the background. I ran Refine Edge on the mask and pushed the radius way to the right. I checked smart radius, checked Decontaminate Colors, and was able to get a decent show of hair strands. Then I painted black on the mask over the face, staying away from the hair strands, in order to bring your retouch back.

If you have Photoshop with Refine Mask, try running Refine Mask Edge on the mask you have and see if it fixes what Ray is talking about.

I like you rendition.
