A lock of John Lennon's hair has sold for the tidy sum of $35,000.

The 4-inch hunk of the rock legend's famous tresses was snipped off as he prepared for his role in the 1967 film "How I Won the War."

According to Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, a German hairdresser kept the hair after giving the Beatle the trim.

The lucky (or wealthy) auction winner was Paul Fraser, a UK-based memorabilia collector.

A spokesman summed up Fraser's purchase about as succinctly as one could, calling it a "good chunk of Lennon's hair" that "was a good size with quite a lot of strands."
