Jon Renau To Sponsor The Great Cut

We are glad to announce that Jon Renau will be sponsoring The Great Cut. They’ve been in the business since 1984 and are the world’s leading international manufacturer of wigs, hairpieces and hair extensions.

Greetings from Jon Renau

As a company focused on crafting products that improve people’s lives, Jon Renau proudly supports Children With Hair Loss. We’re the ones who are receiving your hair to make natural-looking and comfortable wigs that will put smiles on the faces of hundreds of children who need hair.

We pride ourselves on providing wide-scale availability of high-quality hair solutions to men, women and children, transforming lives and instilling a healthy confidence. There is nothing that could be more in line with achieving this than partnering with Children With Hair Loss.


Making Wigs

In 2018, approximately 700 wigs were made by Jon Renau for Children With Hair Loss. Almost 260 lbs. of hair was used to create all these wigs. The Regina wig, which is the wig style created after Children With Hair Loss founder, Regina, takes about 3 weeks to be hand crafted from start to finish.

The specialized cap design of this wig alone takes four days to make. With attention to detail and industry leading craftsmanship you can be assured that your hair donation will be expertly crafted to a piece that will bring confidence and joy to the child that receives it.


Longer is Better!

Eight inches of hair is required for the donations, but longer is better! With a 8” donation we really only have the ability to make a short wig or one designed specifically for a boy. We’d prefer 14” to 20”+ to make a beautiful flowing wig ideal for the young girl receiving it.

When trying to gauge how long your donation will be, remember to measure starting where the hair will be cut, not from the top of your head. Unless of course you’ll be donating everything you’ve got.

Prepare Your Hair

Now that you have decided to donate, and from now until March 16th, please avoid chemical treatments, harsh styling products or excessive heat styling to keep the hair in the best possible condition. No need to have your hair trimmed prior to the event – every inch counts!


The Day Of

Please arrive with freshly washed, brushed, dry hair, and with no product in the hair. Typically, your hair will be sectioned into several parts to create small bundles.

Each section will be secured with a hair tie near where it will be cut. It will then be secured again at the bottom of the ponytail to ensure no hair is wasted or falls out.

When You Donate at The Great Cut

You can rest assured we are going to take care of your hair! Jon Renau’s commitment to excellence encompasses all our endeavors—from the innovative products we develop to the partnerships we cultivate. It is our privilege to partner with Children With Hair Loss and augment its life-changing gifts to children who experience hair loss.
