At last....Fragrances by Tish & Snooky!

Tish and Snooky at last have created their very own tantalizing fragrances. These unique essential oils are reflections of their own personalities.

Snooky's perfume is a blend of two of nature's most intoxicating flowers grown in Hawaii, Plumeria and Pikake. "An exotic, free-spirited floral blend," says Snooky.
Tish's perfume contains vetiver, the root of a tropical grass native to India, Indonesia and Java. It has a clean woody aroma complemented by citrus. Mixed with secret ingredients this fragrance is spicy and fiery, like Tish!

They come in a roll on bottle and a little goes a long way! Right now I am wearing "Snooky" and I get tons of compliments on it. The smell is super sweet and lovely, but not overpowering like some perfume. All I did was place a tiny dab behind my ears and on my neck and it lasts all day.

Tish's fragrance is more dramatic. Very sexy and compelling. New York Nightlife meets New Orleans Voodoo! Couldn't have said it any better. 

The packaging is way cute. Each purse size fragrance comes with a black rose dipped in a special blend of MANIC PANIC's own glitter jewels. The bottles are embellished with rhinestones and glitter, and packed in a matching bag with a gift tag signed by Snooky or Tish. 1/3 fl. oz. 10 ml.

These make great gifts for the holidays!
You can order them from MANIC PANIC webstore

Pink is for boys!

Presenting clothing designer Chris Benz, the "new face of American fashion." His coiffure is as important to him as haute couture. He is famous for his neon MANIC PANIC® hair colors.
On the subject of his hair color, Chris told New York Magazine: "I don't have any tattoos and I don't have any piercings either, I feel like it's not permanent, so I can change it again and again".

From his bio we learn that he once interned with Marc Jacobs, another MANIC PANIC® celebrity dyehard, well-known for sporting purple,green, blue hair "back in the day". (Perhaps Marc Jacobs educated Chris in the ways of MANIC PANIC®?)

Chris currently has a full head of Cotton Candy™ Pink and has been appearing all over the internet talking about his hair.

Check out these press clippings: 

One thing is certain: he looks stunning in his pink hair! Fashionistas take note.

Lady in Blue - Atomic Turquoise!

More stunning work from the CUT Team in Serbia! The Creative Urban Team uses MANIC PANIC Hair Color and cosmetics to create these incredible styles. They write us: 

The hair was bleached with AMPLIFIED FLASHLIGHTNING. After washing out the bleach, hair was divided into several sections, and hair dye was applied on each section. Shishalica used 3 bottles of classic cream formula Atomic Turquoise. After leaving it on hair for 30 minutes dye was rinsed and than another 3 bottles of AMPLIFIED Turquoise mixed with very little AMPLIFIED Shocking Blue were applied on hair. After 30 minutes dye was rinsed. Dye had to be applied twice for achieving color intensity and vibrance. Extensions applied on hair were also dyed with same process. After dyeing hair was cut and styled, and there were several hairstylings for this photo shoot created by Milica Shishalica and Marijana Gligic photographer.

Make Up
We used great Manic Panic make up product to finish up the whole look. 
Mix of two foundations was used on face:

Dreamtone foundation and Moonlight Dreamtone foundation

Bad Boy Blue - Coffin Dust

Mermaid - Lust Dust

Raven - Spider Liner

MANIC PANIC® Hair Color is PPD Free!

You may know that MANIC PANIC® Hair Color is the best semi-permanent hair color with Vegan ingredients available in a variety of astounding in-your-face wild electrifying colors some that even glow under black light.

What you may NOT know is that MANIC PANIC® Hair Color is PPD free.

If you suffer from allergies, this is a huge issue for you.

Read this testimonial from a grateful Dyehard:

"I had been dying my hair for several years with drugstore dyes and at the salon when suddenly, when I turned twenty-one, I developed a pretty severe allergy to PPD and black pigment. If I use permanent dyes containing PPD my ENTIRE BODY (not just the places where the dye touches) bursts into massive clusters of blotchy itchy blistery hives (unsexy). They feel like your entire body is covered in a million mosquito bites! I would NEVER wish this on my worst enemy!

This allergy became a huge pain as I hate my natural colour and my husband LOVED when I dyed my hair black. Enter Manic Panic to the rescue!

Manic Panic is virtually the ONLY dye I can use these days without risking breaking out in hivepocalypse due to dye allergies. I have NEVER had any sort of allergic reaction to it. Manic Panic came to the rescue the day of my wedding on 10/18/10 and my husband was ecstatic to see me walking down the aisle with black hair (Courtesy of Manic Panic’s “Raven”).

It is by far the easiest dye to work with and lasts WAY longer than the “hypoalergenic” dyes that most health supplement shops tend to sell.. and at nearly half the price!

Thank you Tish & Snooky for keeping my hair as dark as the night sky and my body hive-free!"

Beauty on beauty with foils

"I first used Manic Panic ® (Flashlightning®) hair bleach to lighten the ends of my hair. I used foil pieces to separate the three colors: Hot Hot™ Pink,
Enchanted Forest™, and Ultra™ Violet. After the color was in, I heated the foil wrapped ends with a blow dryer and let sit for 30 minutes. I rinsed with cold water and conditioner. The foil pieces were key. It allowed me to really choose where the color went. Some strands are even two-toned, half pink - half purple. I LOVE the result and it matches my favorite lipsticks!" - Abby, Manic Panic® Dyehard

Get RED-dy for a red hot pink purple blue green summer of COLOR!

Can you guess her secret? Only her hairdresser knows for sure!
Stylist to the stars Anthony Leonard from Oribé called us about his client RIHANNA's fantastic spread in the April 2011 issue of Vogue magazine. Mr. Palermo confirms he used several shades of MANIC PANIC Hair Color on the super star. She has her own secret mix of MANIC PANIC colors and not even Tish and Snooky know exactly what that is. One thing is certain: Rihanna has become an icon for her generation and the phones at Manic Panic headquarters are already ringing off the hook with people asking for that Rihanna Red!
We see more and more custom blending and multicolored Manic Panic hair colors than ever before. Why be satisfied with just one color? Why use a color straight from the jar when you can mix your very own custom blend? Check out our April Dyehard of the
Month, Renata. A public school teacher from Minnesota who delights her students with her multi-colored Manic Panic® styles. She even lets them vote on which colors she should do next! (You can see more of Renata on the Manic Panic® website).
In the world of fashion we have some hot news.... model Charlotte Free with pink hair! We were excited to open up the 3/27/11 Sunday edition of the New York Times and see this full color photo of the model proudly (and beautifully, I might add) showing her colors!

Spring is coming and it's time to DYE!

This year we decided to try something new at MANIC PANIC: we ran a contest for the cover of the 2011 catalog. We posted it on our website and facebook and got loads of replies. It was a very tough decision, but we finally chose the winner (pictured left) with her fantastic MANIC multi-colored long tresses. We received incredible entries from all over the world. How could we not include some them? This year's edition of the MANIC PANIC product catalog is chock full of Dyehards in all their splendor. You can get groovy fashion and hair coloring ideas from the models in the catalog. The catalog is available in CD format just write to catalog@manicpanic.com to request one free of charge.
One of the contestants that immediately caught our eye is the CUT Team (Creative Urban Team) from Serbia. Hairstylist Milica Shishalica and photographer Marijana Gligic work together to create sensational styles using MANIC PANIC Hair Color and Cosmetics. MANIC PANIC is so impressed with these girls (all the way from Serbia!) that we have given them an Artists Sponsorship for 2011 and look forward to seeing more of their work. You can view their page on our site here. Here is one of their models who appears in the 2011 catalog, titled "Purple Rose" (not to be confused with our darling Purple Rose the 86 year old MANIC PANIC dyehard from May 3rd blog LOL).
Tish and Snooky have been busy selecting new cosmetics for Spring and Summer as well as performing regularly. Just last week they played a gig with their punk band the Sic F*cks in New York City and were guest vocalists with the band Blue Coup at a show and live video shoot in upstate New York. Blue Coup just happens to be members of Blue Oyster Cult (Albert Bouchard on drums/vocals, Joe Bouchard on guitar/vocals) and Alice Cooper (Dennis Dunaway on bass/vocals.).They play a heady mixture of Blue Oyster Cult and Alice Cooper. How cool is THAT???? The videos are being edited at this moment. Look forward to seeing clips on manicpanic.com. In the meantime there is a vid on our homepage from the movie "Alone in the Dark" - vintage Tish & Snooky and the Sic F*cks in a major motion picture from the 80's!
Tish and Snooky show their appreciation and enthusiasm other musicians by sponsoring several acts, one notable is Alissa White-Gluz from the metal band The Agonist. Based in Canada, this lovely lady is touring the world and will be doing promotions for Peta and lots of exciting stuff. She appears on our website homepage wearing MANIC PANIC synthetic 18 inch Glam Strips in Virgin™ in the awesome photo below. Did I mention that she is also wearing MANIC PANIC Cosmetics
Spider Liner (her fave), Lust Dusts, and After Midnight Blue hair color?
ALSO: I have to say that every time I pick up a magazine I see another superstar sporting MANIC PANIC Hair Color! Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Jared Leto - I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT! We are making the world a more colorful place! Our facebook is bombarded with GORGEOUS photos of Dyehards (see our tagged photos) and every day we get more and more via email. Spring is coming - soon we will see blooms - school will be OUT - IT'S TIME TO DYE!
