There's color in the stars!

"Pop stars seem to be going full circle to bright, vibrant Manic Panic hues. Rihanna debuted a bright red bowl cut at a concert in Brazil, while buddy Katy Perry walked the MTV Movie Awards carpet with a royal blue Betty Page style."
It's great to see that celebs are giving us some color...MANIC PANIC style! Those natural looks can be so d-r-a-b. How sexy and exciting do these ladies look? Last month it was Jared Leto with a Red Passion mohawk. Bold style is back - the future is now!

PURPLE ROSE our May Dyehard of the Month - she's 86 years old!

"Purple Rose" Paull " is possibly the oldest MANIC PANIC Dyehard we've ever encountered. Please visit our website to read the lovely poem she wrote about how coloring her hair changed her life.
Rose herself writes us this story on how she achieved her purple hair:
"My late husband, Harold, was hit by a car in Florida about 12 years ago. The woman ran over him two times and luckily her survived! Perhaps because he was fat. After one year, when he was full recovered, my family and I decided to give thanks to the Lord and gave a donation to the poor through our synagogue. My daughter-in-law, who was a Rabbi in the recontructionist denomination, said it was not enough because when God shows up in the synagogue he (or she) will have to recognize our family of women so we have to dye our hair purple! She brought MANIC PANIC PURPLE HAZE® back from Philadelphia and purple we all became.
Needless to say, it caused quite a riot in the synagogue. But the Lord recognized us and my husband went on to enjoy good health for a few more years and I NEVER TURNED BACK! MANIC PANIC PURPLE HAZE® is my constant companion."
Her daughter-in-law attests: "She went from being " just a little old lady", to a "grande ole glamour dame". She now has a complete purple wardrobe nail polish , clothing jewelry and even the cane! Her new name is " Purple Rose." People don't know what to make of her, she ignores those that take a second look as if they cant believe what they are seeing. She love it when young people come up to her in the mall and say " Wow" I want to be like that when I get older" or "You are such a great grandma, will you be mine as well?"
She loves what Manic Panic has done for her look, wardrobe and most of all her spirit. She makes true fashion statement. She shows everyone that you can remain young at heart- even into your eighties!"

Jared Leto with his MANIC PANIC Red Passion Hawk!

Actor/musician Jared Leto, now on tour with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, twittered this awesome photo of himself with his recently dyed his MANIC PANIC Red Passion hawk. In a very cute series of tweet photos he posted his blonde "before" pik and a one of a table full of MANIC PANIC jars of hair color entitled "Decisions decisions......hmmmmm". Glad he chose the Red Passion - it looks great on him. Jared is such an incredibly good looking guy, he's gonna be drop-dead gorgeous with any and every hairstyle.
I'm also glad to see more and more people out there coloring their hair. It seems we've been very beige for a while. Time to get wild looking, I say! I love that Jared titled his haw photo " a new beginning..." We should have some new beginnings starting right this very moment - HAPPY EARTH DAY! Go vegan. Rumor has it Jared intends to change his hair color for every show. I hope he does it!
BTW doesn't his photo remind you of the handsome gent on our MANIC PANIC catalog cover (bottom right?)

Striped Hair and more!

Meet the lovely Traci from the band Kore who wears her hair in a rad striped style with MANIC PANIC Purple Haze™ hair color. In these photos she is also wearing MANIC PANIC Glitter Powder Shadows in Mystic Heather™ and Nightqueen™. If you didn't guess already, Mystic Heather is the purple and Nightqueen™ the teal color. I love that you can see how dense and striking these shadows look!
She also wears MANIC PANIC True Love™ Glam Lashes on her eyes. With her bangs and long locks she's pumping a psychedelic 60's mod look - updated of course! Very glamorous and rockin' I must say. I also love the background walls! MANIC PANIC sponsors many up and coming artists like Traci.

Hair Massacure and Kali Pink

The "Hair Massacure" is an annual event held on Valentine's Day in Edmunton, Alberta Canada to raise money for foundations that help children with cancer. It was started by a family on behalf of their daughter Kali, who lost her hair due to cancer treatment.

The "Hair Massacure" participants gather to color their hair pink, then shave their head bald. Tish & SNooky's MANIC PANIC created KALI PINK hair color especially for the charoty and has donated this and other products for the cause.
