Tom DurhamFAIRY WINGS - need some ingenious keying

Hey Folks!

I'm at my wit's end in attempting to key/cut-out/mask/matte the HAIR in this shot. I'm putting wings on this fairy. I can roto the body and head no problem. But the flowing hair! It needs to cover the wings! I've tried keying, difference mattes, etc. Maybe there's a better technique out there?

Right now the best I can do is blurry masks as you can see in the still composite. Would like nice crisp hair over the wings. Files attached. (Obviously I should have shot this over greenscreen, but alas, I didn't!)

Any tips are much appreciated!
