Justin Bieber's hair is on tour around America protected by an armed guard

Justin Bieber‘s hair is touring the US in a glass box to raise money for the victims of Japan‘s earthquake and tsunami.

The Biebster recently chopped off some of his famous locks to present to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, who then sold it on eBay for £25,000.

The hair is now making its way around America with its own bodyguard, and fans can have their picture taken with it in return for a charitable donation.

It’s like a dream for me to see Justin Bieber‘s hair,’ fan Elizabeth Marino told the Daily Star.

Justin, 17, who is dating actress Selena Gomez, is currently performing on his Never Say Never world tour.

The Canadian singer has also recently lent his vocal talents to a charity album, with proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross.
