Also helps to clean and oil the latching mechanism. On my Blazer (01) you'd pull the handle by the brake all the way back, hear a slight click up under the hood and nothing happened. Pound on the hood above the latch a few times and it'd pop open. I cleaned and oiled it... works fine now

SOURCE: HOOD RELEASE CABLE BROKE, HOW
You can try to get to the hood latch from under the front of the car. It won't be easy but with something long you may be able to pop the latch.

SOURCE: can not open hood
Will start simple:
If the handle is broken inside car, find cable end pull with pliers, the handle is replaceable by itself from dealer or junkyard.
If you are pulling handle and hood will not pop up, have a helper pull up on front of hood and lightly bump down on hood near the latch with their hand or fist(careful not to dent) while you pull on handle and it should popup, now lube it before you close it, the hood may then need to be opened and closed several times to work lube into latch(this sticking is common when latch system is not lubricated regularly).
If the before mentioned does not work...the cable could be detached at latch which is usually caused by: lack of lubrication and/or trying to open hood in winter after going through carwash.
Now things get trickier and you're best finding a shop that can raise the car up so that they can jimmy it from below.

SOURCE: Broken tab to hood release cable
Get a long screwdriver and try to release the secondary latch that way. Or if you have small hands reach up under the hood and pull the secondary latch toward the left.
