A native of Brussels, Belgium, Raphael Benomar began his remarkable styling career as an apprentice in a trendsetting Brussels salon. He later worked at exclusive European salons where his favorable reputation for artistic, cutting-edge hairstyles attracted a fashionable and prestigious clientele.
Raphael Benomar then imported his French influenced techniques and style into the United States where his international following of clientele continued to grow. His reputation as a master stylist placed his services in high demand, leading him to expand his locations in Palm Springs, CA while Raphael continued to create innovative and trendsetting styles for his movie and television clientele.
In 2007, Raphael took on his biggest project yet: the expansion from a modest 600 sq-foot salon to the current 2500 sq-foot salon and day spa offering not just hair, but skin and massage therapy as well. Raphael’s Salon continues, time and time again, higher and higher, to raise the bar of standards.
