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.

...completely prepared for my state board exam.

My experience at Raphael’s, Brunswick campus, was wonderful! The staff are absolutely wonderful, and always made me feel cared about. I feel like I was trained well and completely prepared for my state board exam. I passed my board exam with extremely high scores, and owe my thanks to this school! For anyone considering a career in the beauty industry, this is the place to be!

You really do change lives!

The instructors are very knowledgeable and understanding. My life is crazy. I have 2 kids and limited sitters so it really works around my schedule and accommodates me. Although I do miss a day here or there, they make it very easy for me to get back on track and keep learning. So far I have met many new friends and mentors. Thank you Raphael’s for this great opportunity!!! You really do change lives!!!
