About Nià the Light

Nià Pettit, aka Nià The Light (and formerly Fro Girl Ginny), believes, “Acceptance of your flaws and your imperfections leads to great things.” That has certainly been the case for her, as she came to love her wild curly hair after growing up thinking blond hair and blue eyes were more ideal. Bringing her beauty tips to Instagram, Nià’s 395K+ followers find out how she makes her afroed locks look so amazing. The mixed Zimbabwean and English model also wishes her fans a #HappyFroday by posting new YouTube videos each week for 80K+ subscribers. She included footage from the #GoWithTheFroTour, where she and fellow social media sensation Lauren Lewis brought a series of natural hair events to locations in Europe and Africa in 2017.
