Tampa Bay "Best of the Bay" hairstylist winner of 2016!

I have been a hair stylist for 13 years, and I love what I do. I have had the passion to do hair since I was little. I love making my clients look more beautiful and educate them on how you should style your hair at home and how to maintain that beautiful color to make it last longer, shinier. I listen carefuly and try my best to give my clients the style they desire. I specialize in cut , color, highlighting and highlift color blonds.

Blonds can be a challenge. If you over process, you will have breakage. Its simple as that. If you dont process enough, you will have brassiness. I want to introduce to you and new way of highlighting or going fully blond.

Goldwell SilkLift(the innovative lightening system) took my blonds to another level. SilkLift features an Intensive Conditioning Serumfor results that are sleek, soft and shiny, plus it provides structural balance to the hair during the lightening process. Its so gentle and conditioning, hair maintains its smoothness and shine- for lightening without compromises! It conditions the hair during the lightening process to reduce damage. Up to 32% less damage compared to other lighteners.

I also carry HighLift Goldwell Color line. 11-12 series that gives you the ultimate lift without using lighteners.

My ultimate favorite is doing fashion hair and makeup. I love doing hair and makeup for photoshoots and runway shows. My work has been published in local magazines such as  South Tampa Magazine, AS.I.B, TBT, Boss, Vertical, Orlando Weddings, Gulf Coast and Vocess. Please visit my website for Editorial hair portfolio. www.irinabilka.com

In January of 2011, Irina was the Grand Prize Winner of Sebastian's What's
Next Awards. She had the opportunity to travel to NYC and style hair backstage
at NYC fashion week with the Sebastian Professional team for Alice+Olivia.

I use GOLDWELL color line and ENJOY, Schwarzkopf, MOROCCAN OIL products. For makeup I use MAC.

 I also own a separate company doing hair/makeup for weddings. IrinaBilkaWeddings.com For 5 consecutive years, we have won "best of weddings" by THE KNOT.Com.

If you havent been satisfied with your current stylist, or just looking for someone new, I invite you to come and experience my loft#2 and feel the positive energy and see my work. If you would like to make an appointment, please call me at 727-251-3884. I hope to hear from you soon!

I hired Irina and her partner Tatianna to do my makeup and hair for my wedding April 2009. Irina did my makeup and hair (bride) BEAUTIULLY!! I felt like a model, and never received so many compliments in my life. Tatianna did all my bridemaids hair and they looked STUNNING!! Both are excellent in every aspect, very talented and a joy to be around. You can trust these girls with all your hair and makeup needs, you will not be disappointed!!

All I have to say is if you go to Irina, you will NOT be disapointed! She is a very talented hairdresser. She turns hair into art! She is friendly, and she offered a lot of awesome ideas for my hair I would have never thought of. I am never going to anyone else for my hair! My hair is healthier, rich, and much more full of life since I have been going to Irina! Thank you so so much for everything! -Chaleena

Couple years ago i moved here from Chicago and i was looking for a hair stylist who could cut/design my hair. I had 4 different hairstylist before Irina in this area... My hair is very important to me since i am a Model. And Irina is the one and only who i trust with a pair of scissors in her hand!

Irina Bilka is just awesome! Like many, I have had my share of bad experiences and am always uneasy about looking for a new stylist. Irina has just been wonderful. She listens, asks the right questions and just makes magic happen. Love her work and completely trust her!

I have never been so happy with my hair! I have been going to Irina for 6 months-I will follow her anywhere. The color she uses is always complimentary to my skin tones, yet she tweaks the color each visit so it is always fresh and fun. I get more positive comments from friends and strangers since Irina has been doing my hair. Thanks Irina!

I've been going to Irina for a few years now, and she always does a fantastic job. Regretfully I went somewhere else to get my hair colored once, and I won't make that mistake again! Irina does a great job every time, using long lasting quality products without charging an arm and a leg. I'd recommend her to anyone!!

I just went to Irina for the first time and I love how my hair turned out. I have been getting my hair colored and hi-lighted for years and I feel I have finally found the stylist for me! Thank you Irina!

Irina is the BEST!!! I have been going to her for over 2 years and every time she does my color or cuts my hair, I always receive complements! Recently, I had a special event at Blue Martini. After my color and cut, she styled my hair with large sweeping curls for the evening. Everyone I knew asked where I got my hair done because it was so beautiful! She knows the right mix of color and the perfect cut for me! I am looking forward to her doing my hair and also my makeup at my next special event!

After trying many disappointing stylists, I was lucky enough to find Irina, and I have been with her ever since (2006). She has the ability to listen to what you want, and actually do it; she doesn't go off on what style she thinks you should have. Her talent allows her to be consistent from hair cut to hair cut. There are no surprises and more importantly no disappointments. Out of necessity, I have had cuts from other stylists (being out of town), and have regretted it every time. Along with her styling abilities, she is a very warm person, who makes you feel comfortable while sitting in her chair. As long as Irina is styling hair, she will be styling mine. Thanks Irina!

Irina has been my hair stylist for a little over 2yrs now. If I bring in a picture or describe a style that I want, she always does a perfect job and my hair looks exactly like I wanted. She even has done a relative's wedding updo's for the bride and bridesmaids and we all loved our hair! She is so talented and creative. I have referred several friends and family to her and they all love her as well.

Irina is talented beyond words and sweeter than candy!! I have know Irina now for 8 years and have never seen her wear her hair or makeup the same, hair and makeup is hair paintbrush and you are her canvas. When it came time for my wedding I knew there was only one person to trust! This past April I hired Irina and partner Tatianna to style myself and my bridesmaids for my wedding. Irina transformed me and my already beautiful girls into MODELS!! My hair and makeup was flawless, I felt radiant on my day and I owe it all to Irina's transformation on me. She is able to capture the essense of every one of her clients, making you look stunning without loosing the look of who you really are. The makeup she used was all of the best quality and she highlights all the perfect spots on your face so that your photographs look just out of a magazine. They were a pleasure to spend the day with, made the experience very fun. These girls are beautiful inside and out, I would only trust their skilled hands and eyes on your special occasion :] -Loni

The absolute best haircut experience you can have this side of the mississippi! Not only is it the most stylish and professional cuts you can get, but the total experience. The conversation and laughs will make you look at your watch when she says "what do you think" and wonder where did the time go. I highly recommend her. She is a prime example of people helping people, look great that is. The only bad part about getting your hair styled/colored with Irina is having to leave when she's finished!

Irina is the hair stylist that made my hair look its best. She is a beautiful person inside and out, she made my trip from clearwater to tampa worth a while. I love the way she took care of me by offering me a drink and different magazines to look at while giving you her full attention. I would highly recommend Irina. Not only does she makes my her look incredible everytime, she teaches me how to take of it and what is the best product for my hair. Good luck you Irina and keep up the good work!

Irina is an excellent cosmetologist. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it turned out amazing. I have known Irina for over five years and she is the only one I trust with my hair. She has what I call "the magical hands", because she knows how to create extraordinary hairstyles. Irina's professionalism will guarantee the hairstyle that you are dreaming off. Thank you Irina for the wonderful work you provided me on my wedding day. Keep up the good work.

Irina does an amazing job with my hair every time! She has been coloring my hair for about 8 months now. She ALWAYS listens to what I want, and then makes it happen! I am, with a doubt, having her style my hair for my upcoming wedding!

I have been going to Irina since 2009 for color, cut, and even styling for special occasion events. She always does a great job and I leave her salon happy and satisfied. I have long hair so it takes a long time to get full head highlights, cut, and a styling done. Still, Irina is always not only attentive and careful with my hair but gets everything done within scheduled timeframe. I have personally suggested Irina to few of my friends and my mom who is still excited about her new color and a cut! Elena S

While I could describe Irina’s ability with tremendous complimentary detail, doing such truly is not necessary as her work product speaks more effectively than any remarks I may put forth. It’s quickly very obvious that Irina enjoys what she does as she takes the time to listen to the client and establish a plan before any work begins. You’ll have to experience firsthand her ability to apply her talents to the client’s desired look, while working with the particulars of your individual features. You will undoubtedly walk out the door exceptionally delighted. Lance
