Curses and Counter-Curses advertisement[src]

The Hair Loss Curse[2] (Calvorio)[1] was a curse that removed the victim's hair or headdress.[4]


This spell is one of the many topics covered in Curses and Counter-Curses, a Dark Arts book by Professor Vindictus Viridian, along with the Jelly-Legs Curse and Tongue-Tying Curse.[2]


The incantation is most probably derived from the Latin "calvus", meaning "bald".
