Shave and a Haircut v9.6 for Maya

Shave and a Haircut is an interactive grooming and styling tool for hair and fur, with associated shaders for offline rendering in Arnold, RenderMan, and V-Ray. It is currently productized as a v.9.6 plugin for Autodesk Maya.

Epic Games has acquired Shave and a Haircut, and will make the v9.6 Maya plugin and associated shaders available on GitHub in the coming weeks as both source code and compiled binaries. These will be free for everyone to use under the Unreal Engine 4 EULA.

If you’re an existing Shave and a Haircut customer, you can contact for support, or if you have further questions.

We’ll update this page when the free version is available.
