Britney showed up at the salon, and told the stylist to give her the works! However, the stylist, Esther Tognozzi, at Esther’s Haircutting Studio decided not to risk a lawsuit by destroying the Pop Icon's image. So Britney “grabbed the buzzer and started buzzing her own hair off. ... I just cleaned it up when she was done with it,” according to Tognozzi. So all that hair was in a pile on the floor, and I tell you, we were all in a frenzy. I grabbed some hair, and she grabbed some hair, and he grabbed some hair and we all ran off to our computers and sell them on eBay!!!

Afterwords, Britney got two tatoos at a nearby parlor, but I can't auction off the needles that they used. - etrywesd

Other items for sale include a painting of a very scary looking bald Spears, hair from a dog named Britney, and a variety of domain names like It appears that the auction for her hair, her lighter, and a can of Red Bull that she drank from was de-listed.
