Hair SHAC by the Pier is a beautiful boutique style salon located in the heart of Old Harwich next to The Pier Hotel. A stone’s throw from The Quay, the salon is perfectly located for nearby parking and is easily accessible via the A120.

We use the best quality Schwarzkopf Professional products and are authorised ghd stockists for the area. If you are looking for a new colour or style, one of our highly trained stylists will happily assist you with a free full consultation. A consultation is required at least 48 hours before any colour service to ensure we meet all your colour/style needs. Stylists are fully qualified and have years of experience in Balayage, Ombré and all types of foiling. We keep up-to-date with all the latest trends, with regular in-house training. We offer wedding consultations and are specialists in wedding and prom occasion hair.

Our opening hours are flexible to try to meet client’s needs, from Tuesday through to Saturday and any enquiries can also be made through the salon social media page on Facebook.

Once in the salon all clients are able to enjoy a complimentary Wi-Fi service, drinks from the menu and a selection of sweet treats from the sweet bowls! The salon also offers pamper party packages for little princesses and gift vouchers are available for all occasions.

With over 16 years salon experience, Gemma welcomes you to enjoy an amazing hair experience at the Hair SHAC and we are confident that once you’ve been you won’t want to go anywhere else!
