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

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.
