Cutting Out Hair Strands?

I swear I saw a tutorial like this somewhere either here or on another Photoshop tutorial website, but I can seem to unearth it. So I'll ask you fellow people...

I am trying to take this image and cut it out in Photoshop CS4. In the background I am using ( making a DVD cover... ), I can NOT set it in Lighten or Screen. I checked through the memories and tags and couldn't find a tutorial that really answers my problem. :(

ANY help is appreciated.

Here is a screenshot of what's going on.

Nothing is wrong with PS or anything, it's just I want to know how to achieve this...
( and I don't know how to tag this; first poster, so don't eat me )

And I have seen this tutorial, but PSCS4 doesn't include the "Filter > Extract" option, so that's unusable.

EDIT: With the image I am using there isn't contrast; so when I use a tutorial like this it will come to no good due to the fact the hair merges with the background, since it's dark. Help?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what to do.

When I try to import videos into Photoshop, I keep getting this error:

I installed Quicktime, and I'm still getting the error. I've restarted my computer, I've put Quicktime running in the background, nothing is really working. I keep getting this error.

Anyone know how I could fix it? I used Photoshop CS3, and I download videos with Any Video Converter.
