ACNH update 2.0 is full of new content and systems. This includes stuff like growing crops and vegetables, using them for cooking, hiring Kapp’n to visit other Mystery Islands, and much more. One of these additions has you help Harv to build up a shopping plaza on his island and populate it with different shops and services. This includes Harriet who runs a Hair Salon. She will, naturally, provide hairdressing services there. To be able to get her, you will need to complete several steps beforehand, and our ACNH How to Get Harriet Hair Salon guide will provide a detailed explanation of everything you have to do.
How to Unlock Harriet’s Hair Salon
To be able to unlock and use Harriet’s Hair Salon in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you will first need to upgrade Harv’s Island. This is easily done, but note that you have to possess a 3 Star Island beforehand. Otherwise, Harv won’t send you the letter inviting you to his island. After going there, you won’t find Harv in his usual spot – his photography studio, but around back, in a whole new area of the island. He is standing there with Harriet, and they will tell you all about their plans for Harv’s Island. What they want to do is to turn that area into a shopping plaza.
Of course, they will need your help to accomplish this. You can donate to have shops built there. Each shop costs 100,000 Bells. Harriet’s Hair Salon is the exception to the rule, as you don’t need to pay for her shop. However, you will need to construct at least one shop before Harriet will also set up her Hair Salon in the Plaza. After donating the 100,000 Bells, wait for one day and Harriet will appear in the Plaza. You can now talk with her to get a new hairdo each day.
