Marilyn Monroe’s hair to be sold at auction

A few hairs of Marilyn Monroe are expected to sell for over £6,000 when they are auctioned in November.

The snippets of Monroe’s hair belonged to the actress’ friend Frieda Hull. A friend of Monroe’s from before she found fame, Hull had permission to take a few locks of hair from Monroe’s hairdresser. 

The hairs are presented in a violet box, and are the latest celebrity hair to be sold at auction. David Bowie’s hair, snipped in 1983, was sold for £13,700 in June, while a lock of Elvis Presley’s hair fetched £87,300 in 2002. via NME
