    This is really a technique best to be described by pictures and not words.
    You can try getting the book "Photoshop studio techniques" or "Real World Adobe Photoshop". They have a section on hair selection and masking.

    Why not go to JB and buy yourself some photoshop tutorial video DVD. I think it is much faster and cheaper to learn this way.

    Head down to City Sqaure,JB and get yourself few tutoril DVD or video CD !!

    yep, that's a good book. teaches how to select fine details like hair and put them as a selection mask. but it's rather tedious, as it involves pushing the edges of the hair to near overexposed condition to separate the hair details from the background. but it works nicely.
