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 Ohio State College of Barber Styling. I enjoy helping my clients look their very best. I can do razor fades, high and tight, flat top, comb-over, head shave, or just a regular old school style haircut. I also do beard trims and at Nini’s you will always get a neck shave and hot towel treatment. I am proud to serve you in this great barbershop that has deep roots and lots of tradition. Please come see me soon. You may book online. Thank you.
