'Very lovely, I need to get my hands at layer masks, this will definitly be a motivation to use it.
Other than that I suspect it works mainly on a plain color background, what about a not so clean backdrop or stock from deviantart? I mean some imagery where the hair is not so easy to separate from a structured back. When it comes to that I try the refine edges option in CS5 but most often rely on my custom hair brushes to create hair:)

Your a true artisan, I can imagine you have the skill to produce realistic looking hair manually. In situations where there is a 'busy' background so to speak, I now use the Refine Edge function, like you said. Im having some great success with it :)
