Tish & Snooky’s® MANIC PANIC® NYC began on 7/7/77, when two N.Y.C.-born sisters, Tish and Snooky, added some extra ambition to their rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. At the time, the sisters were singers in the original Blondie lineup, and few of the people who helped to ignite the late 70’s PUNK scene would have ever dreamt of the company's current acceptance by the mainstream. Through MANIC PANIC’s® decades of evolution, it has become the internationally renowned hair color and cosmetics company it is today. We have come a long way, baby, indeed!

The sisters gathered up some of their clothing designs, and with a $500 loan from their mother, opened America's very first punk-style boutique on NYC's infamous St. Mark's Place. Mom coined the name "Manic Panic", as her two daughters rocked by night, and became business proprietors by day. New York had never seen anything as cool as Manic Panic.
