If she will let you grab her leg, hold it firmly (though they’re small, their legs are quite strong so give it a firm hold) and use the end of a nail clipper to hook around the hair; it should come right off.

Apply a few drops of mineral oil or baby oil (same thing) to the hair and it may help loosen it up. We use it to remove tangles and knots from our horses manes and tails. It is the best thing we have found to loosen up tangled hair.
