So, short hair is in style. An above-the-shoulder bob is considered chic. Next time you’re considering a drastic change, why not do it for money?

Now, a trend of selling your luscious locks is flooding the Internet. Websites like thehairtrader.com are letting users post photos, and sell to the highest bidder. Although it’s an easy way to make money, the ethical issue arises that it may be more beneficial to others to donate the hair to charities.

Who buys? Extension and wig makers are constantly looking for hair that has never been dyed, and stands in good health. Recent auctions on thehairtrader.com have reached $2,025.

I guess you can put a price on beauty.
