Oreste Milano was an Italian barber who operated barbershops in downtown Newark for 40 years. He moved to Newark, New Jersey where he lived for 46 years, from Lioni, Italy. He began work in America with his brother, Americo Milano, shortly after the turn of the century. Oreste operated other shops on Washington Street and Market Street, and in 1920 established a beauty parlor in the former Goerke’s Department Store.
