"Tuck your shirt in, scruffy!"
— Talking mirror to Harry Potter[src]

A talking mirror is a mirror which advises anybody who looks into it on how to improve their appearance. Both the Weasley family and the Leaky Cauldron own one.

Talking mirrors also seem to have a personality and mind of their own, as the one in the Weasleys' seemed to be brusque and rude, ordering people rather than advising.[1] The one in the Leaky Cauldron, which, when Harry Potter tried flattening his hair, said "You're fighting a losing battle there, dear."[2]

Malodora Grymm, a hag who lived in the Middle Ages, regularly consulted a talking mirror to compliment her on her looks, which she had magically enchanced using a Beautification Potion.[3] 

Talking mirrors may be considered a subtype of enchanted mirrors.
