Use the lasso tool (or magnetic lasso, sometimes works better) to select the face and then copy it.

File/new
Select "transparent" as background in the dialog box.

Paste, and use the eraser to fix up any edges that might need fixing up.

You can also draw a mask with the vector tool. This will give you a much nicer edge on the image.
