Mick Jagger's hair auctions for $6,000 at Bonhams

A lock of Mick Jagger's hair has sold for £4,000 ($6,075) in Bonhams' Entertainment Memorabilia sale, which is currently taking place in London.

It made a 100% increase on its £2,000 ($3,000) estimate.

Mick Jagger hair auction
Chrissie Shrimpton was Jagger's first 'real' girlfriend, but the relationship failed after he became unfaithful while touring

The lock was taken by the grandmother of Jagger's former girlfriend and model Chrissie Shrimpton, though Shrimpton remained unaware of its existence until after her grandmother died.

Apparently, her grandmother had saved it after she washed and trimmed the Rolling Stones frontman's hair during a visit to the family farm.

The sale is evidence that the market for celebrity hair remains strong, as collectors seek the most intimate items from top names. Paul Fraser Collectibles has a fantastic selection of hair from history's most famous heads.
