Mick Jagger Put His Hair Up For Sale
The lock of hair was taken from Jagger when he was still a young man, having just dropped out of university
At the age of 69, there are a number of men out there who would just be happy having hair on their head, but when you're a follically endowed as Mick Jagger then you can afford to give away some of your locks, and that's just what the dinosaur rocker is planning on doing.
Jagger plans on placing some of his locks up for auction at the British auction house Bonhams, who will place the locks of hair up for auction on July 3. Bonhams announced on their website that strands of Jagger's hair, cut from his head during the early 1960's, has been put up for auction by Chrissie Shrimpton, who dated Jagger before the Stone's heyday in the late 60's. The website says that the locks should fetch between $2,300 and $3,100 when it goes up to auction next month.
The auction house goes on to mention that Lot 20711 was first collected by Shrimpton's grandmother without Chrissie’s knowledge during a to the Shrimpton family's country estate. The auction house wrote on their website “Apparently, on her grandmother's death, the hair passed to Chrissie's aunt and when she died, the hair was returned to Chrissie by a cousin taking care of personal effects.”
The estimate indicates that the sale should be enough to beat the $1,400 raised by his Rolling Stone bandmate Keith Richards, who sold a lock of his hair for charity some years ago. The money raised by the sale will go towards raising money for the charity Changing Faces.
