Hair of The Beatles for 10,000 euros will be auctioned
During an online auction last week, some of the hairs of the four The Beatles members for almost 10,000 euro up for auction. There was interest from all over the world for the bristles that eventually four times more income than expected.
“The hair in the auction on 12 december 1964 cut off during the Beatles’ film A Hard Day’s Night. After the haircut, they are directly collected by a smart make-up artist who later sold it to fans,” said Denny Hoekstra, The Beatles expert at the auction site Catawiki.
During the auction were the hair of the singers separately sold. The hair of Paul McCartney were among the bidders most sought after. These were eventually by a French bidder bought for more than 2.700 euro. The hair of George Harrison and Ringo Starr brought each of 2,600 euros and were bought by a bidder from France. The hair of John Lennon spent 1,200 euros on.
The most expensive hair in the world is probably that of the emperor Napoleon. Last year was a close call of 4 millimeters of Napoleon for 2.400 euro auction. Measured in length, this is probably the most expensive hair in the world.
