بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 697/376/L=1433)

It is lawful to use and sell animal feather and hair:
لا باس ببیع عظام المیتۃ وعصبھا وصوفھا وقرنھا وشعرھا ووبرھا والانتفاع بذلک کلہ لانھا طاھرۃ لا یحلھا الموت لعدم الحیاۃ [ھدایۃ 3:55]
But it is unlawful to sell the human hair; therefore you must avoid dealing in the same.

Allah knows Best!
