I painted over the highlights with black on the left and then smudged some new hair strands. Then I replace the background in Lighten mode.

Lovely b/g Ron and great overall tonality. Thanks very much

I extracted generally with Remask and the blue channel and traced the fine hairs using Quick Mask, some skin smoothing, sharpening and placed on a gradient-filled BG.

Amazing extraction! The hair detail and clarity is impressive. Nice b/g too. Masterly edit. Thanks Gary

I think this is quite a challenging extraction to turn it into a nice portrait. I would appreciate it if you could also post the uncropped B&W mask that you finally used for the extraction. Thanks...

Looks good Lyle. I wish it was more transparent (glassy) though...
