Several locks of Justin Bieber's hair are being sold on internet auction site eBay by Ellen DeGeneres for charity.
Justin Bieber's hair is being sold on eBay.
The pop star recently had his famous locks cut and they are now listed on the internet auction site with the current top bid at $7,200.
The sale ends on March 2 and the unusual item has so far attracted interest from 61 users.
The locks are being sold by Ellen Degeneres who received some of his hair - which is encased in a Plexiglas box that has been signed by the 'Baby' singer - as a gift when he appeared on her talk show this week.
As he handed the strands over to the 53-year-old star - who had previously written on her twitter page that she wanted some of his hair - he said: "That's my hair. I'm giving pieces of it to different people. We're doing something special. We want you to donate it to whatever charity you want to."
Ellen is donating all proceeds from the auction to animal rescue foundation The Gentle Barn.
Justin decided to change his trademark hairstyle ahead of his 17th birthday next Tuesday (01.03.11).
Discussing why he wanted to ditch 'The Bieber' look, he said: "I just wanted to, that's all, not really a big reason. I just woke up and said, 'I don't want this anymore', so I just cut it."
