Career-Focused Learning in an Industry You’ll Love

At Raphael’s School of Beauty Culture, we are not a faceless corporation or “cookie-cutter” franchise, so you are not just a number. You’ll feel heard and valued as a contributing member of the school.

Our graduates have gone on to become successful operators, teachers, salon owners, and sales representatives in the field of cosmetology.

As a family-owned business for nearly 50 years, we’ve been around a long time, but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck in the past! We control the direction of the school, respond to industry changes, and make adjustments to the program right away, without having to wade through a lot of red tape. That means you get the modern education it takes to make an impact in today’s beauty industry quickly and efficiently.

Ask any local salons about the reputation we have built over the decades.  Rock solid, yet progressive and forward thinking.
