Hi guys! Are the following sentences used correctly in this situation?

1. Excuse me! Would you mind removing your hair so that I can see my screen clearly?
2. Excuse me! Your hair is blocking my screen.

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

#2. The first sounds like removing the hair from the head.

Tho both are more polite than what I'd say!

I am intrigued by your use of "miss". In my experience, albeit limited, a "Miss" will have very kempt hair whereas the hair in the photograph appears unkempt. This suggests, to me, a "him".
