to section off a piece of hair

I know that to part the hair is hacerse la raya. However this is after the hair has been parted, and you take a piece of the hair in your hand, for example to braid it.

Part the hair, then section off the first piece using a comb.

Hacerse la raya, entonces (I really have no idea how to word this). Hacerse una sección con una pieza del pelo usando un peine?

Gracias.

    Hágase la raya y separe la primera porción de pelo con un peine.
    Hazte la raya y separa la primera...

    (I would say "hacete" and "separate", of course. :))

    Saludos.

    El cabello se separa en mechones, es mejor usar esa palabra que "porciones", es más natural.
