Manic Panic: Meet Founders Snooky and Tish

Manic Panic: Meet Founders Snooky and TishIt all started in 1977 when sisters Snooky and Tish Bellomo offered interesting, fun and eclectic items in their St. Mark's Place store in NYC. No other store could compete with their hot and fun beauty products so the sisters ran with it...especially their fun hair colors. Credited with beginning the trend (and a leader in the category), devoted fans still count on Manic Panic to help them express their own color wheel. Cyndi Lauper, a fan of the yellow, once called in a Manic "Panic" as she was low on her stash.

When not attending trade shows, Snooky and Tish (not hairdressers) perform as back up singers in a rock band, but it appears their true passion is sporting vibrant hair colors. Snooky always stays in the blue family while Tish stays pinkish, but loves to play around.

MODERN caught up with the ever fabulous Snooky and Tish to learn about their own shades and to learn more them. They really are fantastic.
