Seems like people will buy anything if it was owned, worn or in this case a part of a celebrity. Such is the case with a lock of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger's hair.

The auction house Bonham's will be selling a lock of Jagger's hair at auction in July. According to Bonhams' website, the hair was saved by the grandmother of  Chrissie Shrimpton "when Mick and Chrissie were staying at her parents' farm. 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." Shrimpton and Jagger dated in the 60s.

The hair will be auctioned July 3, and is estimated to sell for $2,300-$3,100.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit the charity, Changing Faces.
