Nathan Cuneen is the Managing Director of a hair salon franchise called Blow Dry Bar in Australia and now Cherry Blow Dry Bar in USA. 

In his first few years of operating his franchise group he has cleaned out the life savings of his investors and left them with massive debts before moving on to his next poor victims.

Many of the franchises that Nathan Cuneen has sold have closed down with in the first two years. He has even had the audacity to re sell the same territory to a new unsuspecting investor with in months of another salon closing down.

Mr Cuneen is a man without conscience and will do anything to keep his scam going from forging documents, lying and misleading to threaten physical violence.

All of these claims and more have been brought to the attention of the authorities in Australia and it is currently under investigation by a Federal Government department. [continued below]....

The Federal authorities have already found Mr Cuneen to have breached some of his obligations as a franchisor. Having had first hand dealings with Mr Cuneen on top of the many stories I have heard I am sure that I wont be long before this 'empire' comes crashing down.

After years of reeking havoc in Australia under the brand 'Blow Dry Bar' (www.blowdrybar.com.au) he is now attempting to ply his tricks in America and is planning to do so under the branding of 'Cherry Blow Dry Bar' (www.cherryblowdrybar.com).

Wither in Australia or America it would be worth being extra vigilant prior to doing any business with Nathan Cuneen, Blow Dry Bar, Cherry Blow Dry Bar or and other related entity.

More Lies

AUTHOR: David - ()

Not a contradiction at all multiple stores ceased operation as Blow Dry Bar, closed down!

It's not deformation if it is true.

You're hiding behind more lies.

You should make sure your false accusations are pointed in the right direction.

Contradicting Comments??

AUTHOR: Nathan Cuneen - (Australia)

Well Paul H****, (Who is the faceless person behind these posts) your two posts seem very contradicting, firstly you advised the stores had closed down? your second post refers them still trading?? Secondly, All Myer stores were NOT franchised stores and was a complete separate agreement which was mutually terminated with Myer due to the legal actions of YOU the operator taking legal action against our suppliers, hence why they closed your account, which is the point where you as the operator were no longer viable to run under the Blow Dry Bar trademarks..

I could go on all day in regards to your conduct, but this matter will be resolved with the defamation case coming your way, as per the advice by the Police "The more false posts you lodge the more trouble Paul H**** will get himself in"

More Lies from Nathan Cuneen

AUTHOR: David - (Australia)

The above Rip Off Report was not a personal attack just a true account and a warning.

Making such a report is not a police matter true or not. So any of this reporting to police is false along with his other claims which are intentionally misleading to try and discredit the facts.

None of the franchisees who have closed down their Blow Dry Bar stores were terminated but rather they requested to leave. This was helped by the fact that they were inside Myer stores and Myer wanted nothing more to do with Blow Dry Bar. 

In fact an all case Myer were happy for the operators to continue to operate their stores under new brands. This does not sound like operators terminated for 'un-ethical conduct' but rather victims of such conduct.

Personal Attack / Defamation Case lodged

AUTHOR: Nathan Cuneen - (Australia)

This post is purely a personal attack on myself (Nathan Cuneen)

This particular person who posted such faulse accusations has been reported to the police in Sydney Australia (for the 2nd time) and now faces a defamation case in regards to these mis-leading and damaging posts.

The author of this post was a former licence holder (Not a Franchisee) who was terminated due to  un-ethical behaviour, as always there is 2 sides of the story and im happy to provide further information and the actual police records of this particular person. (Who is now well know by police in Australia).

5 Stores have not closed down and Blow Dry Bar continues to grow from strength to strength with another 3 stores alone in the next 4 weeks about to open.

I appreciate all reading this post that this is purely a personal attack on myself.
