Marilyn Monroe’s Lock of Hair From 1959 Up for Auction

 

A 60-year-old lock of Marilyn Monroe’s blonde hair has weathered the test of time and is now being auctioned off at a starting price of $5,000.

The “very well preserved” clipping comes with a photo of the actress and is contained in a box labeled with the name “Kenneth Battelle.” Battelle was Monroe’s hairdresser from 1958 until her death in 1962. She originally came to him as a client because her hair was falling out from too much bleaching and perming, The NY Post reports.

The on-sale lock was cut in 1959, when Monroe was shooting Some Like It Hot.

The online bidding through Lelands Auctions ends on June 7.
