Discover the inspiring journey of a young man who chased his dream of becoming a Hollywood hairstylist. This is the story of his intuitive pursuit of passion and success.
At just 10 years old, Emanuel embarked on an extraordinary journey, armed with scissors and determination, as he began cutting his own hair. After three attempts, he gained the trust of his older brother, who offered his own hair for Emanuel's budding talent. This humble start soon blossomed into a neighborhood phenomenon, with Emanuel becoming the go-to hairstylist for family and friends. Upon graduating high school, Emanuel's commitment to his craft led him to enroll in Marinello Beauty College. After successfully completing beauty school, he wasted no time and, within a year, opened 'Manny's Hairstyling' on Painter Avenue in Whittier, California. However, a profound desire for more significant horizons beckoned. By the age of 24, Emanuel Millar made a life-changing decision – he closed the doors of his thriving salon and embarked on a daring adventure to Hollywood. His goal? To realize his dream of becoming a part of the dynamic film industry. With over four decades of rich experience in the film industry, Emanuel Millar emerged as a highly sought-after hairdresser, serving as the personal hairstylist to iconic figures such as Bill Murray, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt. He collaborated with revered directors, including James Cameron, Brian DePalma, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Garry Marshall, Mike Nichols, Sam Raimi, Ron Howard, and Michael Mann, playing a pivotal role as the head of the hair department on legendary films like 'Kill Bill,' 'Cinderella Man,' 'Public Enemies,' and 'Inglourious Basterds.' Following an early retirement, Millar ventured into producing and directing, commencing with his role as a producer for the feature film 'Counterpunch.' Today, he remains steadfast in his commitment to bringing his own screenplays to life, leaving an enduring impact on the world of cinema.
