Justin Bieber's hair is almost as famous as he is. Now, someone owns a piece of it.

A lock of the pop star's hair sold on eBay Wednesday for $40,668.

All of the money is being donated to an animal rescue organization.

The auction started when talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that all she wanted for her birthday was a lock of Bieber's hair.

There's no word yet on who won the auction, but the hair is reportedly being delivered in a plexiglass box signed by Bieber himself.
