28 November 2017 | Guy Furrow Punk pioneers of the hair color revolution, Manic Panic founders Tish and Snooky Bellomo celebrate 40 years of business. By Karen Wilhelmsen ivid, rainbow and candy-colored tresses have undergone a renaissance in recent years, gracing the manes of today's it girls like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Sisters Tish and Snooky Bellomo, the founders of the revolutionary hair dye company Manic Panic—which started out as the first punk store in America—are excited that the style they've loved for 40 years has finally gone mainstream. With roots in the rebellious punk subculture of the '70s, the Bellomos have spearheaded the color craze by supplying vibrant dyes to nonconformists and famous fans, such as Cyndi Lauper and Steven Tyler, for decades. Marrying a shared passion for beauty, a humble attitude and an immense work ethic, we largely have Tish and Snooky to thank for making wild colors unintimidating for everyday wear. The sisters sat down with Beauty Store Business to discuss the mark they've made on the industry—and what's to come. Tish Bellomo Snooky Bellomo
