DALLAS — A lock of John Lennon’s hair that was snipped as he prepared for a film role has sold for $35,000.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said Saturday that the 4-inch lock of hair was purchased by Paul Fraser, a United Kingdom-based memorabilia collector.

A German hairdresser kept a tuft of Lennon’s hair after giving him a trim before the Beatle started shooting “How I Won the War,” a dark comedy released in 1967.

The hair was one of several Beatles-related items on auction. A sealed copy of the band’s “butcher” cover for the “Yesterday and Today” album went for $125,000.
