Is there any way someone can help me make the background transparent? It's very hard to because of my friends hair, I tried using the lasso tool, refine edge, pen tool, quick selection and changing the background on a new layer. I have no idea how to fix it from here is there anyway anyone can get the background transparent and reupload the .psd file onto this forum. Thank you so much.

Here's my try. It's a PNG file, which looks here like it's on a white background, but it actually has a transparent background. To create the selection, I used the Pen tool for everything from the neck down. Then, for the hair, I used the Channels technique explained in the attached video.

Used Topaz's Remask to extract to a new layer; used Select/Colour/Range to select the hair; copied the hair to a new layer; set this hair layer overtop of the Remask layer and added the missing fringes in with a hide-all mask

The eraser tool is the most useless tool in Photoshop.
Never ever use it for a hair job. What you have done here is an absolut No-go.

Please compare your work with Rich54 and Sabine's excellent job.
Not saying that or owt just said that took me 5 minutes if that probably 2 minutes.

Easy enough to do.
