- Blow Bar insists it is “business as usual” and an “internal” restructure
A popular hair and make-up business with salons around Sydney and a bevy of celebrity clients including Jackie O and Pip Edwards has fallen into liquidation.
BBC Operations Pty Ltd – which trades as Blow Bar Co Operations and operates salons in the Sydney CBD, Bronte and Balmain – appointed liquidators on Monday, according to documents filed with corporate regulator ASIC.
The news – which the company claims is the result of an internal restructuring – will come as a shock to many who have frequented the company’s posh salons.
Blow Bar Co recently handled hairstyling and make-up for Jackie ‘O’ Henderson and her best friend Gemma O’Neill when they launched their events company, Besties.

A spokeswoman for Blow Bar Co told Daily Mail Australia that liquidation – where a company’s business and assets are sorted out for creditors – was an internal restructuring.
“It’s business as usual and there have been no financial impacts for customers, employees or suppliers.”
“This internal restructuring will ensure business continuity and growth.”
