Smiffys are delighted to announce a partnership with Manic Panic, the leader in creative hair colour and cosmetics, for an exclusive line of licensed wigs set to launch at the Halloween and Party Expo in New Orleans.

For over 42 years, Manic Panic has been setting trends and providing inspiration to the beauty and fashion industries.  Manic Panic revolutionised hair colouring, amassing fans with the likes of Kylie Jenner and Katy Perry.  

Smiffys will launch the licensed range of 24 wigs, coloured using the techniques and styles that epitomise Manic Panic. Smiffys will also be distributing Manic Panic hair colours at this show as part of the partnership, which was brokered by Pacific Swell Brands, Manic Panic’s agency.  
For an exclusive first look at the range, rock and roll on down to us at booth #3049 for something bold and bright. At this Expo; Tish and Snooky will be joining the Smiffys booth.

About Manic Panic®
Tish & Snooky’s® MANIC PANIC® NYC began in 7/7/77, when two N.Y.C. born sisters, Tish and Snooky, added some extra ambition to their rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. The sisters had recently been backup singers in the original Blondie lineup when they opened America’s very first punk boutique on N.Y.C.’s infamous St. Mark’s Place. Through passion, fun and persistence, the sisters developed Manic Panic® into the most popular, respected and successful brand in fashion hair coloring and glam cosmetics. The cruelty-free, vegan and globally-compliant dyes are Tested on Celebrities, Not Animals, garnering fans such as Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and supermodel Fernanda Ly. Tish & Snooky, dubbed “The Martha Stewarts of Punk”, still rock the Manic Panic® lifestyle. “We don’t just sell it, we live it!” For more information, please visit http://www.manicpanic.com
