Franz Sigel Shroy & Sue Shroy Bio

We have had the most amazing privilege of being to work with each other for the past third of a century.

 

It is hard to describe how fun work can actually be when you get to work with your best friend.

 

We love the industry that we are in, we love our clients, we love our students and we love each other.

 

We also love Alaska and we love traveling. What else could we ask for? 

Franz Sigel Shroy

Sigel at the top of Zugspitze, the highest mountain peak in Germany.

"LOVE  what you do

 

or  do something else!"

 

 

I haven't much faith in the man who complains

Of the work he has chosen to do.

 

He's lazy, or else he's deficient in brains,

And, maybe, a hypocrite, too.

 

He's likely to cheat and he's likely to rob;

Away with the man who finds fault with his job.

 

But give me the man with the sun in his face,

And the shadows all dancing behind;

 

Who can meet his reverses with calmness and grace,

And never forgets to be kind;

 

For whether he's wielding a scepter or swab,

I have faith in the man who's in love with his job.

 

John L Shroy

Sigel has been a member of the International High I.Q. Society since 2004.

Join here.)

 

Sigel & Sue also received the "Dipome d'Honneur" in both Chigons Haute Couture and Collection Coupes Mode, from Elodie Simon Greffier of Art Libre Padiglione, Paris, France  (2010). 

 

Sigel & Sue appeared in L'Eclaireur magazine, based in Paris, France , and The Hairdressers Journal, based in London, England (2011) . 

 

Sigel holds a level 3 NCFE in the U.K., a beauty technician diploma (with distinction) in makeup and skincare from Stonebridge College, in England . 

 

Sigel has a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from UCMI, and a Doctorate degree from Masters.

 

Both Sigel & Sue received training from Emmy Award winner Dina Ousley in airbrush makeup in Hollywood (2009) . 

 

Sigel got his start in the beauty business in 1979 by being intrigued by his hairdresser’s (Billy Shears) car collection and has been involved in many different facets of this fascinating industry ever since. Sigel has managed and/or owned several beauty salons and several haircare and skincare product lines over the years and has started several salons and even a school from the ground up. These various businesses range in size from one 7-stylist salon he started in Seattle during his “starving artist” years for just $764 which he sold 7 years later for enough to buy a small house, to his largest beauty business the MetrOasis® Advanced Training Center.

 

All of these varied experiences uniquely enable him to speak to those involved in any sized beauty business and not just those with giant salon staffs. Sigel started working with Gene Juarez (Seattle, Washington) in the early 80’s, and had held nearly every position available in the beauty industry since then including being a Paul Mitchell educational associate, platform artist and regional perm educator for Paul Mitchell and won the 1989-1990 “Outstanding Contribution to Education” from Paul Mitchell. Sigel is a licensed hairdresser, esthetician and instructor in Alaska. When Sigel started his esthetics program the average Alaska state board esthetician pass rate was just 35% while the national pass rate was 63% and he quickly developed a program that routinely has pass rates in the high 90’s.

 

Sigel has done thousands of beauty-related classes and participated in many, many hair shows during the past 40+ years and is comfortable with small intimate groups of just a few to much larger venues of several hundred to over a thousand people. Sigel is crazy-in-love with his wife Sue who is both his business partner and international traveling companion and they have been married for 32+ years. Together they enjoy living in the rugged environment of Alaska as well as traveling the world each year where they have been very well trained in the United States, France, Spain, United Kingdom, Canada, and in Italy in hairdressing and skincare. Together they have a passion for family, helping others and keeping up with the latest trends and techniques and are sticklers for maintaining the highest quality and integrity in everything they do.

 

Sigel has traveled extensively for over three decades to gain his education and training.

Sue is Sigel's business partner, and together, they enjoy living in the rugged environment of Alaska as well as traveling the world each year where they have been very well trained in the United States, France, Spain, United Kingdom, Canada, and in Italy in hairdressing and skin care. Together they have a passion for family, helping others and keeping up with the latest trends and techniques and are sticklers for maintaining the highest quality and integrity in everything they do.

 

Sue & Sigel have traveled extensively together for over two decades to gain their education and training.

past few years. Ask the instructors at some of the other

schools about the training they've had during this same time.
