What I do when I need to make a cob out of something is do a ctrl+j, make a new layer in-between the two copies and fill it with a bright color such as #ec008c. Then I zoom in a lot to erase the background. However I don't really erase around the hair just yet since I use a softer brush for that area. Just remember that it takes patience and a steady hand.
Yeah, it's a pain in the butt but whatcha gonna do? lol.
