Raphael’s has helped me so much in achieving my goal of becoming a surgical esthetician. The instructors here are very helpful, they help you and push you do the things you want to learn.

My favorite thing from the school is the inspiration I get from the instructors and the flexibility of the school. It just pushes me towards my career and gives me confidence for the future.


I love how open it is. It’s very open, very hands on. The instructors are very informative, they’ll help you out with anything that you need help with.


When I first started I knew nothing about hair, never did hair, never did family’s hair. As a matter of fact, when I started in the junior classroom I hated it, but I grew to love it. I learned so much and everyone comes to me for help now, and I love it.


I was so tired of putting my life on the back burner and being unhappy, so I was like I’m doing it, no matter what. I’m 51, I’m showing my kids and grandkids, it doesn’t matter how old you are. If you want something and that’s your passion, go for it.

...thorough training and curriculum...

Raphael’s provides a wonderful basis for nail techs. Thanks to their thorough training and curriculum; I was able to pass my state board exams as a Managing Manicurist with all scores in the excellent range. This foundation along with expanded independent study has enabled me to move forward in the beauty industry. To date I have been in national publication six times including four times in Nails Magazine. In addition to achieving my Instructors License; I also am selling artificial nails around the world. Currently; my mother and I are in the process of opening what will be my own salon when I turn 21. The business instruction that I received at Raphael’s will be an invaluable tool as I expand into this new venture.

...I received a great education from amazing instructors...

I previously attended Brunswick Raphael’s. I had to withdraw for medical reasons. But in the time I was attending, I received a great education from amazing instructors that had me feeling extremely confident in the skills I was being taught and practicing. I highly recommend this school to anybody interested in going to school for anything in the beauty industry!
