Magic Monday: Love Spells and the Secrets in Your Hair

The magic of hair has been entwined in love spells and enchantments from deep within the wells of history.

It’s sexy… the old tales tell of mermaids brushing their long locks on rocks to enchant the sailors.

It’s strong….Dr. Frederic Leroy found that a single strand of hair can hold 3oz (100g) of weight!  That’s equivalent to the weight of 11 pennies holding onto one strand.

It’s smart…. your DNA coding is written in each strand.

And it has long been used to cast enchantments…. This is a golden locket filled with a lock of Marie Antoinette’s hair on display at the British Museum:

And I will admit. I have used mine to enchant a certain Burke Heffner to me…

In magic workings, my Grandmother Helen believed in the secrets of hair and the power of a well placed bobby pin or ribbon.

You all ready for some old school magic?

Come a little closer…

If a woman sleeps with a bobby pin or ribbon in her hair, the old lore says that part of the bobby pin/ribbon will be enchanted with her essence. Then, that woman could leave behind her bobby pin or ribbon in a potential lover’s space to draw that person to her.


When I met Burke, I would casually drop my thin, black bobby pins between the wooden slats of his floor boards. I would wrap a single magic strand of my hair around a bobby pin and place it under his pillow. Later, we would braid pieces of our hair together for the times when we were apart. And only 3 days ago, two of our strands were waxed and sealed into the floor of our home.

Our DNA, our magic, our locks…entwined.

Hair flowers, found feathers and bobby pins. That’s what my Grandma would call a triple threat!

My relationship with Burke is one of the things I’m most proud of in my lifetime.

We keep our love super hot through working gorgeous enchantments on each other.

The bobby pin enchantment is just one of the many ones we’ve worked. And if you live anywhere near New York City, and are interested in finding out more about romantic enchantments to draw the right lover to you, or to enhance your current relationship, I will be teaching Sex Magic: Secrets of Love Spells and Old Enchantment Workings at Kitty Cavalier’s School of Charm and Cheek on May 31st. Interested? I’ve got six spots left…one might be for you.

Will you pick it up?
