FAUSTO FERRARI BARBER SHOP
Fausto Ferrari moved to Cincinnati from Italy in the early 50's. He began his career as a Barber on July 6, 1957, working for Angelo Bruno, a fellow Italian who owned a shop in Downtown Cincinnati since 1931. He continued to work there for a decade and in 1967 Mr. Bruno sold his business to Fausto.
He and his younger brother Emilio ran the barber shop until Emilio passed away suddenly last year. Fausto continues to work 6 days week, taking Sunday's off to attend church, where he used to sing in the choir.
In his spare time he attends Knights of Columbus events with his fellow Italians and enjoys playing clarinet, accordion, mandolin and guitar.
Fausto is proud of his vintage barber shop and plans on barbering for many more years to come.
