ATLANTA -- In need of a trim in the middle of the night? Want a buzz cut before dawn? No problem.

Anytime Cutz Barber Shop on Bennett Street in Atlanta is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The popular shop is owned by Carol Lamar. Barber Chuck "Picasso" Scott says they get a lot of night owls in for touch-ups before a night on the town.

"This is the jumpoff," longtime customer Cavario H. added. "This is the one place where they can come into town, get off the plane at 11 o'clock at night, and come into a barbershop. This is the preparation, you know? Preparation for Atlanta nightlife."

Anytime Cutz just celebrated its one-year anniversary. Along with the local "regulars," Scott says the barbershop has some pretty popular clientele, including rapper Young Jeezy, Shaquille O'Neal and boxer Floyd Mayweather.

Part of the appeal, Scott added, is that the employees and the clients feel like family.

"Everyone who comes to the 24-hour barbershop always feels like they're at home," he said.

As for the long hours?

"I won't get tired," Scott added.
