Nigireia, also known as Ni, is a braider and protective stylist who hails from Portsmouth, Virginia. She is a serial entrepreneur and educator who enjoys connecting with positive and progressive individuals. Her greatest passion is to empower others to live their best lives.
As owner of Imarii 79 Braid Lounge in Lawrenceville, she seeks to promote the health, protection and growth of natural hair through protective stylying. She learned to braid hair at the tender age of 6, started working with extensions and other styles at 12, and became very popularly known as a braider during her freshman year of college. After years of maintaining a small, exclusive client base, she decided to expand and share her talents by opening Imarii 79 Braid Lounge, where clients receive braids and protective styling so that they can love their hair.
Imarii 79 is located at 1884 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, Suite 4, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30043. Contact Nigireia at 757.776.2992.
