A guide on how to unlock Harriet’s shop on Harv’s Island. For more information on what you can build on Harv’s Island, head over to our guide. This upgrade to Harv’s Island became available with Version 2.0 of the game, released on the 4th of November, 2021.
For more information on other content included in Version 2.0, head over to our page on What’s New in the ACNH Version 2.0 Update.
Harriet is essentially the co-founder of Harv’s Plaza as she helps Harvey plan the whole thing. So, you won’t actually have to pay for her shop on the plaza! She offers her hair cutting services for free!
For those of you who do not have any experience with previous Animal Crossing games, Harriet owned a salon named Shampoodle where you could have your hair colored and styled for a fee. This was an especially fun process back then because appearance customization wasn’t available like it is in ACNH so the only way to change up your hair was by going to Harriet’s salon.
What does Harriet offer?
This time round, however, since you can change your hair at a mirror at anytime, Harriet needed to offer a bit of a different service. Instead, each day you’ll be able to head over to Harriet, who will then give you a completely new hairstyle for free! Once you’ve been given the new hairstyle, you’ll then be able to use that hairstyle at a mirror - kind of like learning a new DIY!
