blinds on these settings: Width 4, Opacity 28, color brown, horizontal and light from left/top 
checked. Paste tube again on top of larger frame, drag so it is above smaller frame too (hair sits on top
of smaller frame). Duplicate drag copy to below the larger frame (hide top layer tube), 
erase anything hanging out of frame. Add drop shadow.  Unhide top tube layer, erase everything on the 
outside of the large frame so only the hair is above the small frame. (see sample)
Now you can add drop shadow to both frames.
