I achieved the look I really wanted for these photo's using lightroom apart from the obviously green tinge to his hair, how do I fix?

left hand side near his ears, it looks like a reflection but there was nothing that was green near us.

Sorry, I can't see any "green tinge" either. Maybe these samples are too small to be able to see what you are seeing.

What's your editing tool? LR would sort this out for you, using the brush and colour adjustments at that location.
I must admit I read this thread because I have an image where hair has turned green and I don't know why, as it happened only when I produced the jpeg from the .PSD file.

In the first pic there may be an increase of red and green in his hair on his right side. In Develop mode I moused over his hair in different places and watched the RGB values in the Histogram. You get rid of green by adding magenta so you could use the adjustment brush with a low flow like around 50%, I like to check the Show Selected Mask Overlay, paint over his hair, uncheck the overlay checkbox and move the Tint slider to more Magenta.

Frankly, I didn't see green hair either -- until I grabbed a copy of the shot and upres'd it 300%

The issue here is the need for LOCAL adjustment of the green-magenta axis of the color wheel. Global adjustment makes for less natural skin tones.

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost! Keep POTN alive and well with member support https://photography-on-the.net/forum/donate.p​hp

I'm starting to think maybe it's just my crappy monitor

Could be light coming from the grass.

Duplicate the layer, make an adjustment and then blend it with a layer mask.

I'm still not seeing green, although I can see what seems to be a lighter patch of hair.

I see it, although it's very yellowish. A localised colour adjustment would quickly fix this - in Photoshop you could do it with a mask and a Colour Balance or Hue/Saturatiom adjustment, or you could do something similar in Lightroom if you're using that.
