New Yorker Selling His 'Virgin Hair' for $800 on Craigslist

A New Yorker is selling his 'virgin hair' on Craigslist for $600.

A New Yorker is selling his hair on Craigslist for $800 or best offer.

It’s not just any hair, it’s virgin stock – no perms, coloring, flat irons, or blow dryers.

In case you’re wondering, it’s 27 inches long and black, or, as he puts it, “jet black, the way a raven shines in the moonlight, the color of a deep dark sleep.”

The minimum purchase length is 25 inches and only serious offers will be considered. Cutting will commence upon payment and styling services are optional.

Before you say he’s nuts, you should know that a 4 in x 16 inch chunk of virgin hair – maybe a ponytail’s worth - sells for about 300 dollars.

Unlike the Craigslist seller’s locks, that price doesn’t include styling.

Gluing, sewing, dying, and cutting all cost extra and can add up to the price of a car.

One client at New York’s Gemini 14 salon reportedly spends close to 50 thousand dollars a year coloring, styling, lengthening and fluffing her ‘do.

At 10 thousand dollars for a basic application, the salon’s extensions are said to last about 6 months.
