Blevins Barber Shop is located along Morris Avenue in the Two North Twentieth Building. The barber shop, formerly known as Johnson's Barber Shop, is the only tenant that has been in the building concurrently since it opened in 1962 as the Bank for Savings Building. During the late 1980s and 1990s, the barber shop was the only tenant in the 17-story office tower.

Bob Blevins of Cullman is currently the only barber in the shop, which is opened Tuesday through Friday. Blevins has been cutting hair downtown for 40 years. He formerly had his own shop on 20th Street North and moved to the Morris Avenue location in 1991. At that time, the three-chair shop was home to 7 different barbers, many of whom worked part time.
