Two weeks after we broke the story that a celebrity auction website had been offering a lock of Farrah Fawcett's hair for $1,000.00, the item is still up for bid.
The lock of golden hair, in a snow globe casing, went in the block three days after the icon's death on June 25th. It is apparently a novelty item, first made available during Farrah's swimsuit poster-Charlie's Angels heyday, not taken from her final haircuts before her passing,and gives us the excuse to run these vintage Farrah Fawcett ads from the period.
The continued availability of the hair on hunkwithjunk.com, with the promise that it may one day be used to clone Farrah, is a surprise in light of the international publicity the story caused after another, better-financed website, took the post as its own.
