Deep in the cellars of the O'Brien Press is a safe that contained stories too horrible to be read. But somebody has broken into that safe and the stories have been released.

This is one of those Forbidden Files.

'It started with my favourite girlband WitchCraft. They were beautiful. They could sing and dance and above all they were cool. And I wanted the WitchCraft hairdo more than anything else in the world.'

But then I got it, and that's when the trouble started. Because it turned out that my hair was evil...

Ten year old Melanie gets her WitchCraft hairdo in a mysterious salon that appears out of nowhere. Although thrilled with it, she soon realises that her hair is evil and has a mind of its own. From cutting up all her Mum's clothes to summoning a plague of rats, Melanie's hair tries to destroy her whole life.
