Beyond any therapeutic good Britney’s shaved noggin’ will do for the singer, it seems her shorn locks will work their magic on the charity scene as well. According to SAWF News, Esther’s Haircutting Studio confirmed to Access Hollywood that the salon was planning to sell Britneyâ€™s lost locks on the auction site, Ebay. Additionally, a portion of the hair from the singer’s head will also go directly to the Britney Spears Foundation for charity. The Foundation exists to help children in need; specifically focusing on music and entertainment as a healing medium. The irony of Brit’s current situation is not lost on that last sentence.Â
Her decision to shave seems to have been on an impulse. Otherwise, it would have been great for her to set something up with the American Cancer Society and raise money for an amazing cause by doing the whole thing in public. Then again, none of us have any idea what she’s going through; and rightfully so, should let her enjoy her new appearance in peace. Expect hats to be all the rage with this woman very, very soon.
UPDATE: The auction is online. Have a look here.Â Current bid? 1,000,000.00! Whoa. You also get her lighter and a can of Red Bull. For those without cash to literally burn, you can also pick up a smaller lock here for a reasonable (?) current bid of $240. This is hilarious.
