RaeAnne Skarda attained her cosmetology license at the prestigious Toni&GUY Academy in Dallas, TX. After completing her intensive program, RaeAnne specialized in color and chemical services mentoring under one of TIGI’s National Technical Education Directors, Samantha Finley, and Darian Bishop, a NAHA Avante Garde finalist. In addition to these amazing educators, RaeAnne worked alongside Anthony Mascolo and Guy Mascolo, co-founders of Toni&Guy, at the Toni&Guy Salon in Dallas and focused her development in chemical and color services while utilizing tone-on-tone techniques to create depth, dimension, and beautiful hair with movement and vitality.
Returning to Omaha, RaeAnne joined BUNGALOW/8 Hairdressing in 2010 to further expand her technical expertise. Through her tenure, RaeAnne has compounded her scientific, technical, and artistic abilities through master classes with Bumble and bumble University, Wella, Kerastase, Davines, and American Crew- among others. She also had the opportunity to teach at the Paul Mitchell Academy in Wisconsin. There, RaeAnne taught a series of core classes including color and hairdressing fundamentals.
She believes that healthy hair is the foundation to beautiful hair. RaeAnne is committed to offering precision services while improving the overall physical canvas that is her guest’s hair fiber. Ever the consummate professional, RaeAnne cocktails deep-conditioning treatments with in-salon reparative services to re-structure damaged hair and to prevent any further damage from color services, heat-styling, and the environment. Furthermore, RaeAnne is devoted to the BUNGALOW/8 Hairdressing culture of hospitality. This brand of customer service goes light years beyond “please and thank-you;” it is a business-wide pledge to create a unique, guest-focused experience for everyone who receives our services or purchases our world-class haircare products.
When thinking of RaeAnne’s personality, the word “strength” always comes to mind. This may be because of the tenacity she shows behind-the-chair, in the gym, or while riding her Harley. To pair strength with style for her clients, RaeAnne’s favorite go-to products are Initialiste and Cimant Thermique from Kerastasé and Dryspun Finish from Bumble and bumble. These products have become HERO products for many of her clients striving for long, healthy, gorgeous hair.
