I really don't know what to tell you, but I feel your pain because I too fought with hair algae. So much so that I took down my tank and I'm starting over. A refuge is a good idea though and I'm sure it will take time. I think you may need a little more lighting though...If I read correctly (15w 50/50 in a 25 gal refuge) I think it supposed to be around 5 watts per gal.
