Bad Hair Day! Celeb Hairstylist Oscar Blandi Sues Investors For $1M — Do A-List Clients Like Kelly Ripa Know?
Oscar Blandi is the man responsible for crafting the coifs of Jessica Biel, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, and other gorgeous celebs, but the state of his company’s finances are currently a hair don’t. Nearly three years after TPR Holdings Inc. bought a controlling interest in his company, RadarOnline.com has learned that the stylist has filed a lawsuit demanding they pay him the money they promised!
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Blandi and his business partners Louis Rotondi, Gina Bertolotti, and Gina Lombardi filed a lawsuit against TPR Holdings Inc. for $1,095,344.25, due to “nonpayment of amounts that are due and owing under two promissory notes issued by TRP” to acquire their interest in Blandi’s high-end hair product in 2011.
Should TPR “fail to appear” at the upcoming trial, the document notes, Blandi will be awarded that sum, plus 10% interest from the April 11 filing date, and court costs, in a summary judgment.

Blandi’s namesake salon on Madison Avenue in is a frequent stop for celebrity strands in distress. His most loyal clients -- to name just a few -- consist of Jennifer Garner, Faith Hill, the Olsen twins, and Kelly Ripa. He also joined the entourage on set filming Mission Impossible: 3 as the personal hair consultant of Tom Cruise.
Blandi launched his line, ‘Oscar Blandi Collection’ in 2005, and six years later beauty investors TPR Holdings LLC announced they had acquired a controlling interest in the company with a view to take these products on the route for international expansion. They are still in business together as of now, despite the lawsuit.
