Not as good but it works with one photo if the background is all one color. I created a background with gray picking the color closes to the hair and it gives you a rough mask. You have to up the tolerance to 22 and subtract the selections where you don't want them. You can then use refine mask to cleanup the rest.
I only spent about 5 minutes on this.

When my bones turn to dust,
and if my CD's didn't rust,
future generations will see my photos
and think that I was nuts.

Great Job-Looks like you got the concept and technique down!
