The small clipping of hair was taken from the late rock star in 1983 for his waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds.

A lock of David Bowie's hair has sold at auction for £13,700.

The clipping was taken by Wendy Farrier in 1983 to be used on Heroes singer's waxwork at London's Madam Tussauds.

However, after keeping the Starman's hair in a frame for 33 years, Farrier passed it onto the auction house at Heritage Auctions, where it was eventually sold.

Despite everything from the late icon seeming to sell like hotcakes, a signed copy of Bowie's 1971 album, Hunky Dory, and the alternative colour sleeve of his 1976 album, Station To Station, failed to meet their reserve of £465 and £743.50 respectively.

They're still on sale, though if you fancy blowing your month's wages on them.
