First, if you have not already done so, detach the brake centerwires at the calipers. Next, squeeze the brake handles, and you should be able to see how the solder balls at the ends of the centerwires engage the handles. In most cases, it is simply a matter of pushing the centerwire toward the brake handle.
With the centerwire removed, it should now be very easy to remove the cable housings themselves, unless they are covered with handlebar tape, which must be unwrapped first.
