Someone Out There Will Likely Pay $8,000 For Marilyn Monroe's Hair

To be fair, she had very nice hair.

If you’re a hardcore Marilyn Monroe fan with $8,000 to kick around, you can now spend it on two locks of the iconic star’s hair.

So you can… look at it? Pet it? Frankly, we’re not really sure why anyone would pay big bucks for a stranger’s hair, even a stranger as amazing and legendary as Marilyn Monroe.

The hair will be up for auction via Los Angeles’ Julien’s Auctions in November, and they expect it to be sold for between $6,000 and $8,000, People reports. Other items, like Monroe’s movie costumes, letters and personal possessions will also be available.

Monroe’s locks were previously in the possession of Frieda Hull, a friend of the actress who died in 2014. Julien’s Auctions noted that Hull was originally a member of the “Monroe Six,” a group of hardcore fans who frequently followed and photographed the actress.
