Well, you've got your work cut out for you on the frizzy hair guys, but I've
had some success using Filters->Colors->Decompose for frizzy haired
individuals. Go with RGB separation. I then pick the layer with the best
contrast between the hair and the background and massage that into a mask. The
rest of the person can be cut out fairly cleanly using paths (and then path to
selection once path is created). Once again, stick this into your mask.
On non-frizzy haired individuals (ex. M4110016.JPG), I'd go paths all the way.
Obviously, I'm leaving out a lot of the step details, but let us know if/where
you get stuck if you need more explanation.
