Lock of Mick Jagger's Hair Headed to Auction_Here's your chance to own a piece of Mick Jagger. A piece of his famous hairdo, anyway.
The British auction house Bonhams is putting a lock of the Rolling Stones frontman's hair -- dating back to the 1960s -- on the block.
Bonhams' website states that the lock of hair was saved by the grandmother of current owner 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, the younger sister of model Jean Shrimpton, dated Jagger in the mid-'60s.
The lock of hair will be auctioned July 3, and is expected to bring in between $2,300-$3,100.
Proceeds from the sale of the hair will go to Changing Faces, a U.K.-based charity that supports people with disfigurements to the face, hands or body, and their families.

An E! source says the baby has dark hair, adding, "She looks just like Kim."
The baby, whose name has not yet been revealed, has two cousins on the Kardashian side: Kim's sister Kourtney has two kids with her boyfriend Scott Disick.
Kim and Kourtney’s sister Khloe has tweeted, “I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love. More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now.”
Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, commented on the baby's arrival to E! Online while on the red carpet of the Daytime Emmys on Sunday night: "We're happy, everybody's good and she's beautiful."

"ANNA NICOLE" ACTRESS GETS BIGGER BUST _ Portraying tragic bombshell Anna Nicole Smith in the Lifetime biopic "Anna Nicole," airing June 29, actress Agnes Bruckner goes from a B-cup to a DD — with absolutely no surgery involved. Her secret? State-of-the-art prosthetics designed by a three-time Academy Award winner. Greg Cannom said he and his team "would apply the breasts in tandem. This created the freedom for them to move and jiggle more like flesh. It would have been impossible for her to do the pole dancing or fill out some of the outfits without this innovation."
... For actress Agnes Bruckner, who has described herself as "flat-chested," wearing the prosthetics was certainly an uplifting — but bizarre — experience: "It was so strange, wearing them for the first time. I was standing there 'topless,' but it was really like I had a shirt on because there was nothing exposed of my own. I'd look at myself, and I kept thinking, 'Oh, my God, could you imagine if they really were that big?'"
... It took three hours each day to put on the fake breasts.
