Bids for a single lock of Justin Bieber's hair have reached $6,700 in an online auction. The pop superstar cut his famous hair at the weekend and he is offering his locks to various charities in an effort to help them raise money. And one lot has already proven to be a big success on eBay.com.
The hair up for grabs on the auction site was given to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres during a taping of her U.S. show on Tuesday, February 22. Bieber told DeGeneres, "I'm giving pieces of it (hair) to different people. We're doing something special. We want you to donate it to whatever charity you want."
DeGeneres plans to hand over the proceeds from the hair auction to California animal rescue center The Gentle Barn. The auction ends next week, March 2.
