Recently had a TF shoot, and some of the shadows came out with an orange tinge to them likely due to the white balance being a little off.  They are cast off the model's hair and arms so it is difficult to correct with simpler settings in Photoshop CS5 without affecting the edges of the skin. Any suggestions on best method to correct?

Can you show a crop of the problem?

Mask the area with a tiny feather and use one of several adjustment areas to correct.  There are a number of them that will work.

you could try with a new layer, saturation blanding mode and paint  with white to desaturate and red to saturate.

Thanks everyone. After a few more tries I found a solution, I used magic wand to select white background area and desaturated gets rid of the color tinge.
