I accidentally did this in a video editing program (this is a still), and since I love it, I was wondering how to recreate this effect via photoshop. It's not as simple as just using the Shadow/Highlight function.

Any advice?

It's indeed hard to recreate, since the light on her skin differs from the b&w frame. It's also hard to recreate the 'washy-ness' of the overall image (at least, that's the thing i'm struggling with).

Surprisingly the lighting is exactly the same in the B&W, but has been altered by means of effect applications.

Literally, the way I lit the scene was meant to accommodate much movement without changing the light.

That's why I'm so flabbergasted as to how I managed to achieve such an effect via post!

If you "OK"d Image Editing, it would be easier for folks to have a go and work out how to do it (or at least give us the OK for this one).

It would be easier if you gave us the same video frame to play with.

It looks like whatever you did ran some sort of local contrast enhancement. "HDR" programs include this as part of the tone-mapping process. You can do something similar by running the unsharp mask with a large radius. The main issue with doing this is the halos that are created around high contrast areas.

I made this using only desaturate, unsharp mask, and curves.

You actually did a good job. Yeah I was thinking it looked a lot like a tone mapped image, however I edited this in Adobe Premiere with just highlights shadows as well as contrast and some brightness.
