Glitter and Color: The Wild World of Tish and Snooky
This episode is sponsored by Capital One Spark Business.
If you’ve ever been a teenage girl, or if a teenage girl secretly lives within your heart, you’ve probably lusted after the iconic, candy-colored hair dyes made famous by Manic Panic.
Coming of age in New York in the 1970’s, Tish and Snooky were born performers. The sisters have always been artists at heart; they credit their love of color (and glitter!) to their artist mother. Pursuing singing careers and partying at iconic clubs such as CBGB, the pair were constantly complimented on their signature punk style. The persistent fanfare encouraged them to open a punk boutique selling all the items they loved, a first of its kind. Not surprisingly, their wild hair colors were the number one seller. It was a natural progression to pursue production and private labeling of the product.
Business women by day and performers by night, Tish and Snooky still turn it up, touring periodically and performing with the likes of Blondie and RuPaul. These women do it all, gardening, cooking, singing, CEO’ing – they are truly the baddest of baddass feminist rock stars.
