And Now, the Highlights

You thought you knew when to hold ’em, fold ’em, walk away, or run, but then you lost it all on red, came up empty at the slots, and had to do a lap around the Beverly Center in only undies. Again.

For a real winning streak, hit The Hive for an extension or two — they’re just $8 a pop at the darling Silver Lake salon.

Meet with owner/stylist Lissa Renn, get hip to her piece-by-piece approach, and decide to go either the subtle route of natural hues or add flash with a rainbow of brights and neons.

When appointment day arrives, Renn affixes each lock (real hair via Europe) with a minuscule copper tube (which promotes growth without damaging the follicle). Depending on how many you’re getting, you could be in and out in just a few or settled in for the long haul (full sets include wash/application/blowout).

Odds are you’ll leave with a jazzy new ’do.

You can bet on it.
