Enzo Angileri - Hairstylist to the Stars!
Enzo Angileri is one of the most experienced hairstylists working in Hollywood today. His clientele are among the world’s most beautiful and talented: Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Katie Holmes, Renee Russo, Holly Hunter, Lucy Liu, and Nicole Kidman are just a few.
As a young boy growing up in Sicily and Milan, Enzo dreamed of being a hairdresser. He’d study the hairstyles of his favorite Italian movie stars in black and white films, and then recreate the styles by experimenting on willing family members.
Enzo’s freelance career took off in Milan where he worked on major fashion campaigns, editorials and runway shows (Armani, Versace and others). After Milan, it was New York and then off to Los Angeles where Enzo’s career reached new heights in feature films, music videos, commercials, print and advertising. Enzo designed the hair for videos with Katy Perry, Shakira, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey and Madonna. .
While his passion lies in editorial work, Enzo has achieved great success creating hairstyles for film and TV. Most notably, Enzo won a Creative Arts Emmy Award in 2005 for "Outstanding Hairstyling for a Mini-series, Movie or a Special”, for Charlize Theron’s hair in The Life And Death of Peter Sellers.
In addition, he also won the Award for "Best Contemporary Hair Styling” at the First Annual Hollywood Makeup Artists & Hairstylists Guild Awards, for Rene Russo’s much talked about haircut and styling for The Thomas Crown Affair.
He was nominated again five years later for "Best Contemporary Hair Styling” for Charlize Theron’s hair in The Italian Job at The Fifth Annual Hollywood Makeup Artists & Hairstylists Guild Awards. And then again, Enzo was nominated for a Creative Arts Emmy Award for "Best Period Hairstyling” for his work with Demi Moore in If These Walls Could Talk. He also worked with Charlize in Berlin on the Paramount release of Aeon Flux.
When Award Shows roll around, Enzo is in maximum demand. He has had his hand in creating indelible images such as Charlize Theron when she won the Golden Globe and the Oscar, Holly Hunter for the Emmys, the Golden Globes, and the Oscars, and Nicole Kidman and Jodie Foster for the Oscars. In addition, many remember Enzo’s work on Faith Hill’s videos, including "Breathe,” which won "Best Video of the Year.”
Sought after for his remarkable expertise and originality, Enzo has been interviewed by In Style, Marie Claire, and Italian Vogue. Enzo’s editorial work crosses all spectrums – fashion, beauty, and celebrity. He’s worked for top magazines worldwide.
Enzo’s unique vision continues to place him in high demand for film, commercials, videos, television, advertising and runway shows. And he continues to set standards for what’s hot in the realm of hair.
