When Shiva heard about it, he felt challenged, riped off one of his curly hair and through it on the ground. A great hero, Virabhadra, raised and awaiting his orders. He was told to guide Shivas army to Dakshas sacrificial and disturb them.

This story comes from the poetry of Kumara Sambhava (Birth of God of War) of Kalidasa.
