Blevins Barber Shop was a barber shop located along Morris Avenue in the Two North Twentieth Building. The business, formerly known as Johnson's Barber Shop, was the longest-surviving tenant of the Bank for Savings Building, operating from 1962 to the 2010s. During the late 1980s and 1990s, the barber shop was the only tenant in the 17-story office tower.

Veteran barber Bob Blevins of Cullman moved his business from 20th Street North to the Morris Avenue location in 1991. For a while as many as seven barbers worked part-time at the three-chair shop. Blevins was the sole barber there for several years, cutting hair Tuesdays through Fridays, before he retired in 2020.
