For that superclose shot, get decent textures, make alphas in photoshop, create another Hair Object in maya, attach geometry to it (NurbsPlanes), apply grass textures and alphas onto your nurbsplanes.. In the Background put the Hair you already created.

You mean instance the nurbs planes on the new hair Object?

Exactly! I know it works in XSI, it has to work in Maya also. I mean that each Hair which is calculated out of the guideHairs gets a Plane assigned. You can also make a bunch of different planes and it will then choose from them. I know it works, but I cannot explain you, how.

If Maya refuses to make this with Nurbs, try with Polyplanes with a fair amount of polys to realize the bending in the wind.
