Welcome to Shwe Beauty & Tanning Salon, Old Harlow

It’s our absolute passion to provide you with outstanding Beauty Treatments and Sun Beds and to make you feel special and safe every time you visit us.

A BIG THANK YOU to you for your support during the past two years; we wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for you.

It’s taken us twenty-six months to get back to ‘normal’ after the pandemic began. I’m delighted to say we’ve finally got there and we’re nice and busy again.

Never in a million years would I have imagined we’d have to close our business for 221 days for lockdowns. Then rebuild our business again after working so hard to grow our team when we expanded into new premises on Old Harlow High Street in 2018.

When each lockdown ended, we were so happy to be back open, but you weren’t going on your usual nights out and holidays, which meant you didn’t need certain appointments that you would have had before the pandemic began.
We had to deal with many cancellations due to clients having to isolate or not being able to attend their appointments as the schools had sent their children home, which also affected many of our team.

We went to considerable lengths to do everything we could to make you feel safe when you visited us. We had such fantastic feedback on the measures we took.

Thank you for trusting us
I was so determined to get us through this. I didn’t want everything we'd done over the past eleven years to have been for nothing.

Throughout all of this, my team has been absolutely amazing. They have all been so positive and worked so hard, and I couldn’t have done this without them.
It’s taken such a long time and so much hard work to rebuild our business and keep our team of twenty employed. We couldn’t have done this without you.

So we all wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to you for your support during the past two years; we wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for you.

About us

We first opened our doors in December 2010 on Station Road in Old Harlow, and in June 2018, expanded the Beauty side of the business into its own beautiful new location just a 2-minute walk away onto the High Street in Old Harlow. In January 2022 we moved our sun beds over to our Beauty Salon, so our beauty treatments and sun beds are all under one roof and with much better parking.

We've got a FANTASTIC TEAM here at Shwe.

We proudly have 850 five-star reviews on Google, praising the quality of our services, how friendly and professional our team is, and how clean our salon is.

In 2020 we were awarded the GOLD Client Experience Award for our continuous high standard of service for five years running.

We've been finalists two years in a row for 'Best Customer Service' in the National Entrepreneurs Awards in 2019 and 2020.

We are so proud of these incredible achievements and it's all thanks to the amazing reviews our clients have given us.

We hope you enjoy your time at our salon, and we all forward to meeting you soon!
