2019 MODERN SALON 100: Sadé Huckabee @sadeofcourse

by Jamie Newman | August 1, 2019

Have you been wanting to experiment with your Instagram grid? Sadé  Huckabee (@sadeofcourse) gives drool-worthy inspiration. Not only is her color work beautiful, but her rows of photos are on fleek. Her recipe includes three shots of one look—two different angles that frame a zoomed-in look at her handiwork. Prepare for soreness in your scrolling thumb—don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Sadé Huckabee


Iron Rose Salon, Oklahoma City

Specialty: Vibrant color

Top-performing post: I created a marigold wavy bob, which was shared by quite a few large accounts. I feel like it received this reaction because all-over yellows aren’t something a client typically goes for, but when they do, you have no choice but to make it awesome!

Favorite apps: PicsArt cleans up your content with minimal effort, FilmoraGo is really user friendly for videos.

I follow: @presleypoe, @goodbyehorsegirl, @Itsaspenray, @artbeautychaos, @vividandbalayaged

Pro tip: Quality content is key, and everyone loves a good story to read!

Hidden beauty talent: I feel like I’m great at creating elegant waves.

My audience follows me because: For my colorful content.

How social media changed my life: It is practically a second job, but being able to inspire other artists is really rewarding!

My first @modernsalon feature: I was featured during a #playingwithpurple contest! It was super exciting!

TRENDING: The French Bob


TRENDING: The French Bob

by Anne Moratto

Leave it to the French to inspire a haircut so chic, it’s truly timeless. It’s a look that never goes away and when you see it, you know it. And lately, we’ve been seeing it everywhere.

Valsamis used GL Tapes from Great Lengths to give this braid depth and thickness.
