But what does the Selection actually look like? 

The »marching ants« are not exactly relevant here as they only signify the 50%-selection.

So you may have to improve the Selection (via »Select and Mask« for example).

 

Can you provide the relevant section of the original image?

I am afraid you just hit upon a weakness of the operation. 

I get pretty much the same result as you while an image with some color cntrast gets a better result. 

 

It looks like you will have to amend the Mask as before …

I’m not sure why, but I got better hair results in Photoshop v21.2.3.

I chose Select > Subject, then Select > Select and Mask, and it picked up a lot of the stray hairs right away from just those two steps. If I tried the Refine Edge brush it didn’t actually improve it. But moving some of the sliders did provide some control over how the stray hairs showed up.
