Looking for a belated Father's Day gift? A lock of Mick Jagger's hair is currently being auctioned off at Bonhams for an estimated price of somewhere between $2,300 and $3,100. The hair was reportedly (and creepily) "preserved by a former girlfriend's grandmother back in the pre-Stones early 1960s" and is worth about twice as much as Keith Richard's strands recently sold for.
