Our locations throughout the years started on campus and have always been convenient to the campus. Visit Nini’s today for a full and relaxing haircut and beard shave.
The History Of Nini’s
In 1929, Ben and Floyd Nini opened their barbershop at 1599 N High Street on The Ohio State University campus. Back then, haircuts were only 40 cents and shaves were 25 cents. The shop moved, in 1937, to 1604 N High Street and again to its present location here at 2088 Henderson Road in 1967.
We have always taken pride in our connection to the Columbus area. One of Nini’s first customers was the late, great Jimmy Crum. In 1967, during the famous Columbus riots, Ben Nini would provide cool towels and protection for citizens that were hurt or injured during the ordeal. Three generations of Nini’s, originating with Ben, have continued this barbering tradition in Columbus, Ohio for 90 years.

Charlie graduated from Ohio State Barber College in 1980. After working in Grove City and Upper Arlington’s Arcade Barber Shop, he finally found a home at Nini’s in 1983. Eventually, in 1991, Charlie became co-owner and is proud to have been growing the Nini’s tradition for over 30 years. He thoroughly enjoys working with our skilled barbers in a friendly atmosphere. What does Charlie love most about Nini’s? The friendships that you make over the years and the fact that you have multiple generations of family members even reaching as far back as before the shop moved from High St. to Henderson Rd in 1967.

I graduated from The Aveda Institute in 2014, and I have been a men's hair expert my entire career. Creating the perfect look for you is very important to me. I make sure I pay attention to the small details when doing your haircut. You will not only leave Nini's with a haircut that makes you look and feel great, my haircuts will also make you feel right at home. Whether you want a high and tight or a clean business cut I am your girl. Book with me online, I'd love to be your stylist. Thanks Kaleigh
Dan has been a practicing barber for 24 years. A father of 4 adult children, Dan moved to the Columbus area in 2017 after his children went on their own. My love of Columbus brought me here and I'm lucky enough to have landed in one of the most storied shops in Central Ohio perhaps the whole state. I look forward to meeting the Nini faithful and welcome the Nini newcomers. "Make an appointment to see me online or just drop by. "I look forward to serving the community. "
