You would need Shave and A Haircut for Maya 2018 (*/**) in order to render the hair, otherwise you would be able to render only the main mesh.
For an even better render quality you can increase the hair primitives count up to your machine memory limit (The actual renders have been made on a machine based on a single I7 cpu with 16 gigs of ram – about 5 minutes for a 1480×800 frame)
–12 different hair systems for a total of about 1.5m hairs.

Included: Exported hair curves created by hair primitives (FBX and Maya 2018 ascii) so you can use them as guides if you’ re using a different Fur/Hair plugin.
* The actual files have been created with Shave and a haircut 9.6
** Please always use an updated Shave and a haircut release to avoid rendering issues.
The rig is completely flexible and has smart Ctrls, for good deformations.
The blendShapes are connected to the highpoly mesh (ML_Head_Upper_Jaw_Ctrl):eye close/roar/mouth close
