Hi I'm Sarah, the Founder of Shwe. Thanks so much for visiting our website!

I hope you'll find we’re not just any Beauty and Tanning salon. Most of our clients say they don’t know how they lived without us!

We first opened our doors in December 2010 on Station Road in Old Harlow, and in June 2018 we expanded the Beauty side of the business into it's own beautiful new location just a 2-minute walk away onto the High Street in Old Harlow. We've got a FANTASTIC TEAM here at Shwe. It’s our absolute passion to not only just provide you with outstanding Beauty Treatments and Sun Beds, but to make you feel SPECIAL every time you visit us. And if for any reason you feel you didn’t receive this, please let us know so we can put it right for you. If you didn't know already, we’re open 7 days a week and until 9:30pm weeknights, so there’s no excuse not to come in and treat yourself! I hope you enjoy your time at our salon, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hi! My name is Laura, I am the new Rising Young Star at Shwe.
Along with being new to the team, I am also new to the beauty industry. I have always been interested in nails and beauty, but my main passion is making people feel good about themselves. Beauty treatments can transform you physically, but also mentally. It is really uplifting to leave the salon with a fresh set of nails, or a new tan to boost your confidence and I am all about making that happen for you. So far, I have done my short qualifications in Spray Tanning, Nail Essentials (File & Polish) and Gelish nails. I can’t wait to learn more so that I can carry out all your beauty needs in the future. I look forward to meeting you all soon.
