Tish & Snooky’s® Manic Panic® NYC was born on 7/7/77. Few of the people who ignited the late ‘70s punk scene, including Tish & Snooky, would have ever dreamt of its acceptance by the mainstream, or MANIC PANIC®’s evolution into the internationally renowned hair color and cosmetics company it is today.
NYC natives and sisters Tish & Snooky were backup singers in the original Blondie line-up. In 1977, to add some extra fun to their Rock ‘N’ Roll lifestyle, the two introduced hair dyes in every color of the rainbow to the USA, along with matching wild colors for lips, nails, and eyes. By the ‘90s, Tish & Snooky watched as their hair dye and cosmetics were worn proudly by fashion models and celebrities. MANIC PANIC® was suddenly appearing in magazines, television, and major motion pictures. Today our products can be found all over the world.
Tish & Snooky are lifetime animal rights activists and Manic Panic® continually sponsors animal (and human!) charities. The Manic Panic® line is against animal testing and has won 2 awards from PETA. It is Tested On Celebrities, Not Animals®. The entire Manic Panic® hair color line is Vegan and Paraben-free. The line of Glamnation® Cosmetics is cruelty-free.
In between running the MANIC PANIC® empire and traveling, the sisters still manage to find time to perform, rocking out with a variety of legendary artists. Tish & Snooky, “The Martha Stewarts of Punk Rock”, still rock the MANIC PANIC® lifestyle. “We don’t just sell it , we live it!”™.
