The world wept a lone tear when teen heart throb [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] chopped off his long locks, but have no fear Beliebers! It turns out the hair is being put to good use.
Believe it or not, the winning bid for the lock of hair went for a jaw-dropping $40,688! Yes, this is more money than many people make in a YEAR.
At least it all supports a good cause. The money will go to The Gentle Barn Foundation, an animal rescue organization. Even better? The winner gets to hang out with the pint-sized pop star.
And just who is this lucky winner? The highest bid was placed by GoldenPalace.com. The company plans to display it on tour at [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] concerts to raise even more money for charity.
Since we can’t be the owner of his golden locks, let’s flashback to the better days when Bieber thrilled us all with his signature haircut!
