Embrace a career as old as time

Barbers have existed for hundreds of years, which means that becoming a licensed barber is a way for you to create a lasting and meaningful career. Barbers come from all walks of life and begin their careers for different reasons. Regardless of why you want a barbering career, Raphael’s Department of Barbering is here to help you along on your journey!

Raphael’s may have been open for over 50 years, but that doesn’t mean that our curriculum or style is 50 years old. We are school partners with American Crew, which gives our students a unique learning experience. This means our students have the opportunity to receive a barbering kit they can use during their program and throughout their careers. If you want to attend a barber program with a fun, friendly, and family-like culture, Raphael’s is where you can make your mark!
