Even Justin Bieber’s haircuts are worth big bucks. The 17-year-old pop sensation gifted a lock of his hair in a signed glass box to vegan television host Ellen DeGeneres last week when he appeared on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. DeGeneres put the prize on eBay to auction off for charity, and the strands sold at staggering $40,688. The money will go to The Gentle Barn Foundation, a nonprofit animal-rescue organization. The buyer, goldenpalace.com, is an online casino that often makes purchases at celebrity charity auctions. The site plans to use the lock of hair for charity fundraising.
