Couple things you can try. Sometimes gently pounding on hood near latch while someone pulls release will jar a sticky latch loose. Same with lifting edge of hood. If that doesn't work, you will most likely need to take it to a shop since they can be pretty tricky to open especially if the release cable is broken.
