A lock of David Bowie's hair has sold for $US18,750 ($A25,228) at an auction in Beverly Hills, California.

The hair was taken by Wendy Farrier, who cut a small piece of Bowie's hair in 1983 to be used for his waxwork at Madame Tussauds in London. She kept a lock of it in a frame for 33 years, before passing it on to auction house Heritage Auctions.

It was one of many celebrity-related items at the Beverly Hills auction on Saturday.

The British rock superstar died in January at 69 after a battle with liver cancer.
