Heritage Auction in Dallas had the 4-inch chunk of Lennon's hair after a hairdresser cut it off before his role in a 1967 movie called, "How I Won The War."  According to reports, Paul Fraser, a UK-based memorabilia collector was the highest bidder at $35k.

$35k might seem like a lot of money to the average Joe ... but as far a Lennon memorabilia goes, it's loose change. His '65 Rolls Royce Phantom V sold for $2.23 million and lyrics to "All You Need is Love" netted $1.25 million.

That's some expensive hair.
