Default Strange question

When Mom passed the ME clipped three locks of her hair, one each for myself, my father, and my sister. I would like to find a way to preserve mine and possibly do some sort of display, like putting it in a lucite block. Anyone have any ideas on the subject?

Lincoln's hair is being auctioned and in a frame behind glass, it still looks like hair.

My wife had a lock of her grandmothers hair so it will stay fine as it is.
