The bid on eBay ends on March 2 and the proceed will benefit The Gentle Barn which is Ellen DeGeners' charity choice.
Justin Bieber's hair is a hot item on auction website eBay.com as bids pass $12,000. The pop superstar cut his famous hair last month 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 February 22. The Baby singer 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 centre The Gentle Barn. The auction ends on Wednesday, March 2.
