The Great Cut: Episode 1

In Advocate by El Moreno25 Comments

The planning starts now, and we intend to document the entire journey from now until 3/9/19. Watch as your boys begin scouting locations for this epic follicle forray, in Episode I of our journey to The Great Cut.

What Is The Great Cut?

Great question El Gustavo.

The Great Cut is a hair-whipping, karate-kicking, record-breaking, blockbuster charity event where we will break the Guiness World Record for the largest hair donation in the history of mankind.

The current record was set in the Philippines during the ‘Matrix 8-Inch Cut for Cancer’ in which 1,345 participants donated their hair, netting 181.24 lbs of hair in a 24-hour period.

By our count, we’ll have to hack at least 1,500 manes.

While we’re at it, why not set a new world record for the most consecutive hair whips at the same time?

We’ll burn those bridges when we come to ‘em, but in any case we have just over one year to plan the largest gathering of men with long hair for a charitable purpose since the dawn of time.


If that’s not enough hair hacking action, listen as we dive deeper on yet another podcast episode of Let it Ride.

  1. Sounds cool, haircut in the sunshine, followed by surfing with newly shorn locks of Love. 👍🏽👍🏾👍

  2. Our little one just donated 8” of his untouched baby hair to children with hair loss! We’d love to donate it again as a part of your mission. How can we participate?

  3. This is EPIC! Y’all are doing amazing things, can’t wait to see how awesome this turns out! Wish I could be out there with y’all.

  4. My sister was just diagnosed with cancer and it is really hard both for her and us (siblings). This is very appreciated thing you guys are setting up,thanks. I’ve been growing out my hair for a few months just finally past the akward stage never thought about doing it for a cause but now I am. I will definitely be there.

      Hi Chase so sorry to hear about your sister. We will keep her in our hearts and send as much positive energy as we can. Can’t wait to meet you in person.

  5. Longhairs, I have been planning to participate in this event for the last two years. Are you still doing this on November 11, 2018? (I think that was the date you said in the past.) As you start to market The GREAT Cut, get the date out there in your video and on FB. Go getters like me what to spread the word, and if time/$ permits, even fly out to California.

    Some questions…
    * Will there be a block book at a local hotel with free transport to The GREAT Cut?
    * To whom should I send potential stylists from the San Diego area for The GREAT Cut?
    * Is there a weekend schedule of activities planned? When will it be available?
    * For those unable to attend in the flesh, how can folks participate virtually?
    * For those who can’t get to San Diego, how can folks participate in The GREAT Cut so that their donation can count in this world record? — Video, picture with time/date stamp…and then upload to the FB account?

      Hey Equus! Date is now March 9th 2019. Excellent questions and ideas. We’re working on clear answers to all this right now. We will release a link with all details once we have everything laid out. Stay tuned we’ll be dropping more concrete plans over the next several weeks.

      1. Another suggestion: With some creative networking and as Sigma Nu alumni, you may want to reach out to the fraternity and sorority community around the USA as they plan for Dance Marathon 2019.

  6. My hair should be long enough for a hair whip by then, but not a cut. I’m gonna try to make it down. If you put El Chuckarino by the door wearing his wig and ringing a bell, I’ll make a cash contribution. :o)

  7. I am so glad you guys changed the date! That makes me a lot more desirous of participating! I used to be in LA when I found out about The Longhairs, but I recently moved up north to the state of Washington. That being said, I want to be there for the event and pray that I can take time off work to fly down and be part of this great moment in longhair history.

  8. Excuse me your highnesses
    How about here in the philippines?is it possible to participate?

  9. for organizing a cut a ton, the main problem is not finding hair donators, but good hairdressers to avoid getting that bob haircut…: http://mes-cheveux.info/wp-content/uploads/bsmupplhkm.jpg
    in fact, much stylists use hair donations for making short haircuts to get frequent customers
    i suppose so that much donators ( the most part of the male) want to stay long hairs or make several hair donations, and, to avoid having another akward stage, they need going to a chin bob; it is better for them waiting they have a sufficient length before donating ( 10 inches min cut)
    the good technic for having a good cut is to make 3 to 4 tails: http://livepretty.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/LP_HairDonation11.jpg; you get a straight cut without any rectification cut
    for finding good hairdressers, you ought contact Panthene Beautiful Length , and use your hairdresser as a supervisor
