Description
At the tender age of 10, Emanuel embarked on a journey of self-discovery by picking up a pair of scissors and cutting his own hair. Three attempts later, his older brother offered his own locks for Emanuel's budding talent. This humble beginning soon evolved into haircutting sessions for family and friends in the backyard and throughout the neighborhood. Upon completing high school, Emanuel took a significant step towards his passion by enrolling in Marinello Beauty College. His dedication to his craft was unwavering, and after graduating from beauty school, he achieved yet another milestone by opening 'Manny's Hairstyling' in the vibrant heart of Whittier, California, along Painter Avenue. However, the yearning for something more profound beckoned him. At the age of 24, Emanuel made a life-altering decision. He closed the doors of his thriving salon and set his sights on Hollywood, determined to fulfill his dream of becoming a part of the film industry. With over four decades of invaluable experience in the film industry, Emanuel Millar has left an indelible mark. His journey led him to become one of the most sought-after hairdressers in Hollywood, entrusted with the tresses of luminaries such as Bill Murray, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt. He collaborated with esteemed directors, including James Cameron, Brian DePalma, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Garry Marshall, Mike Nichols, Sam Raimi, Ron Howard, and Michael Mann. Emanuel served as the distinguished head of the hair department on iconic 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.'
