The final bid for the teen star's hair came in Wednesday morning at $40,668.

Bieber teamed up with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres to sell the hair to raise money for an abused farm animal rescue center. He originally gave her the hair when she tweeted she wanted it for her birthday.

The bidder will receive the hair enclosed in a plexiglass box signed by Bieber, as well as a letter of authenticity signed by DeGeneres.
