Another Fine Selection

Hey, everyone.

I'm trying to get good at making fine selections and I've been looking through tutorials, but I can't get agood selection on this picture I've been practicing with. Here's the original image.



And here's the best I've been able to do in "Select and Mask".



As you can see, it's the lower right corner that's been giving me trouble. I've adjusted every slider there is and nothing gets rid of that lighter area. What can I do?

Here's the file I've been working with.

Thank you, everyone.

Wow, you've set yourself an absolute nightmare task. I spend most of my day cutting people from backdrops at the moment but I can't close on that (certainly can't do it at that resolution). The hair is almost every shade of grey on a backdrop that is likewise moves right through the grey spectrum. Not many would be able too do it.

Certainly I would think the solution won't be one method of masking. I imagine you are going to have to build up layers where different parts of the hair are visible and then composite. Honestly If I had something complicated I'd just mask it all out and paint the hair in by hand.

You can get a smooth end result only if you can apply hair masking technique here I guess.
