A charity bidder is buying a lock of Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger's hair for $6,000 -- double the price it was expected to go for.

Jagger's hair was sold by a woman who dated him in the early 1960s. It was kept in an envelope for some 50 years with the message, "Mick Jagger's hair after being washed and trimmed by Chris at Rose Hill Farm."

It was sold at an auction in London Friday. Proceeds benefit the charity Changing Faces, which gives support to people with disfigurements to the face, hands or body.
