The Real Champs

In Celebrate by El Rubio6 Comments

It’s realistic to say we might not have broken the world record for the most hair donated to charity without the support from our premier sponsor, Jon Renau.

A global leader in alternative hair, and the company that manufactures custom hair replacements for Children With Hair Loss, Jon Renau made MVP-caliber contributions to The Great Cut in 2019.

Therefore it’s with no small measure of joy, and a concentrated burst of enthusiasm that we announce Jon Renau will once again sponsor The Great Cut in 2024.

Servant Leadership In Action

After an early financial contribution in 2019, the team at Jon Renau helped plan logistics for the Cutting Zone, then provided crucial leadership at the event with an orientation and pep talk for all the stylists and barbers doing haircuts.

The company bought tickets for and sent no fewer than 10 hair stylists from their own staff, while their volunteers oversaw the hair collection by accepting, logging, sorting and preparing hair donations for official weight checks.

If that was all we could have asked or hoped for, Jon Renau made a final donation of $6k at the end of our 2019 fundraising campaign, by which we hit our goal of $50k donated to Children With Hair Loss.

  1. Thank you Jon Renau! Can’t wait to meet the team and absolutely CRUSH the event!

  2. So exciting! Their folks were soooo helpful and fun to work with in 2019!

  3. the world record of manes cuts is, in french language “de la gloriole”; more important is the number of hair replacements provided from those donations ( each being the sacrifice of 2 years and more of hair growth, and often an painful awkward stage)
    at the first Great Cut, it was difficult to obtain 50 000 us$,minimum required to make 50 wigs using 500 donated manes ( and you collected more than 1300 hair donations); don’t forget that Jon Renau stylists, if they are benevolent to cut hair at cut-a-ton, don’t work free to make wigs…
    you can also help by sending a few buckets to Children With Hair Loss, which will be also important than your hair, and you haven’t to finish short haired or shaved; it is better to help a regrowth being bobbed
    of course, much thanks to Jon Renau for his help and actions to charity
