When it comes to coloring your hair, making sure you have an understanding of the look you want is just as important as finding a good hairstylist who can bring that look to life. We know from experience that sharing a detailed vision with your stylist is crucial to achieving a result that you’ll be satisfied with.

But finding the right balance of warm to cool tones and the right shades to complement your natural roots isn’t always easy. Six-time SI Swimsuit model Camille Kostek knows that. She has spent time curating her characteristically blonde locks, developing just the right instructions to give her stylist for the perfectly highlighted look.

She has done such a good job of curating her natural-looking hair that her followers are begging to know what she asks for—and so are we. Not one to gatekeep her beauty routine, Kostek delivered via an Instagram story on Oct. 24.

“I always keep my dirty blonde base and like to keep it ‘rooty’ so the upkeep is minimal !! I ask that ‘the money pieces’ and baby hairs be lightened with pieces brightened throughout my head (avoiding the root) to give an overall lighter look while staying natural looking 🤍,” she wrote on her story.

Kostek is certainly someone with blonde highlights worth emulating, so we’re thrilled she shared her secrets. Whether you’re one to lighten your hair for the summer months or want a brighter look year-round, the model has got you covered for your next salon appointment.
