"They had just embarked upon the immensely difficult topic of human Transfiguration; working in front of mirrors, they were supposed to be changing the colour of their own eyebrows."
—Description[src]

Crinus Muto is the incantation of a Transfiguration spell that can be used to transform the colour and style of the caster's hair[1].

Practitioners

Etymology

From crinis, the Latin word for "hair,[3]" and muto, which means "to change.[4]"

Behind the scenes

  • The incantation to this spell is most likely similar to the incantation for growing facial hair, as Ronald Weasley confused the two and ended up with a fine handlebar moustache.[2]
