About Irina

Beauty permeates Irina Kolenda. It’s as essential to her as water and air.


The Ukrainian-born, Chicago-based blogger, Irina began her career as a fashion stylist, and still manages her business as IK Style (www.ikstyle.me). Using her knowledge of fashion, hair styling and make-up artistry, she coaxes out the best in everyone. It was through styling that led her to her own blogging about fashion and beauty.


She brings attitude, charisma and energy into everything she does, helping to create that “magic” for which everyone is looking. While physical beauty is important, Irina also has an innate sense for bringing out the mysterious qualities that makes every image pop.


Life is unpredictable and discovering new challenges is all part of the fun. Irina, the artist, stylist and blogger, always looks forward to her latest adventure.
