A lock of Sir Mick Jagger’s hair is set to fetch between £1,500 and £2,000 when it goes on auction next month.

Snipped in the 1960s, the Rolling Stones frontman’s hair was kept by relatives of his former girlfriend, Chrissie Shrimpton, and will form part of a music and movie memorabilia auction at Bonhams, in central London.

Bonhams’ catalogue says: “The statement from Chrissie Shrimpton confirms that, unbeknown to her at the time, this lock was saved by her grandmother when Mick and Chrissie were staying at her parents’ farm.

“Apparently, on her grandmother’s death, the hair passed to Chrissie’s aunt. When she died, the hair was returned to Chrissie by a cousin taking care of personal effects.”
