Mick Jagger's hair, which was cut almost half a century ago by his former girlfriend Chrissie Shrimpton, has been auctioned for 4,000 pounds.

The hair - sold by Shrimpton - was bought by an anonymous buyer for twice what Bonham's auction house had predicted that the hair would fetch, Contactmusic reported.

The buyer will also receive an envelope with the words 'Jagger's hair after being washed and trimmed by Chris at Rose Hill Farm' written on it.

The hair was stashed away by Shrimpton's grandmother and was discovered only after her death.

The proceeds from the sale of the hair will be donated to the charity Changing Faces, which supports people with facial disfigurements. (ANI)
