eBay gives Britney's hair the chop

$1m locks delisted

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The shaved locks of "troubled" US chanteuse Britney Spears have been removed from eBay, according to the official "Buy Britneys [sic] Hair" website.

For those of you who've been up a tributary of the Amazon for the past couple of weeks, our Brit recently hit Esther's Haircutting Studio in Tarzana, California, and demanded staff take the clippers to her A-list barnet. The resulting hair inevitably popped up on the world's favourite tat bazaar, but have now been given the chop "for an as yet unknown reason".

Accordingly, if you really want to part with $1m for multiple strands of pop memorabilia, you'll need to talk directly to Buy Britneys Hair. Mind you, it is throwing in "the Omega clipper used to cut it all off and even the can of Red Bull she was drinking at the time", plus "her blue Bic Lighter".

And if that doesn't persuade you, remember that this is "the Ultimate Britney Spears Experience!" It's also apparently "a piece of history that can not be duplicated!"

We'd like to point out to Buy Britneys Hair that the latter claim is a clear breach of the Trade Descriptions Act, since Ms Spears need only regrow her hair, quaff another can of Red Bull, and make her way to the nearest hairdresser to instantly duplicate this particular piece of history. ®
