(Classic Rock) A lock of David Bowie's hair is expected to fetch as much as $4000 at auction. Heritage Auctions is offering a 2-inch piece of the rock icon's hair for sale as part of a wider auction of Bowie memorabilia. The hair comes attached to a photograph of Bowie with the hair's current owner.

Wendy Farrier is a former employee of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London and snipped his hair in 1983 to create a wig for Bowie's wax figure. She kept a small section of his hair as a souvenir.

Farrier says: "Hair samples were taken so that they could be matched at a later stage to accurately reproduce the various shades of blond Bowie had as his style at the time." Read more here.
