Chances are the clog is exactly as you suspect, a combination of long hair and soap. I don't advocate drain cleaner chemicals as a rule, but when my shower drain does what yours is doing, that's what I do. Since the shower drain has only about and 18" run to the main drain, I know the clog is very close to the shower, and it's not a massive or deep down clog that will require augering. Of course, part of my problem is the drain is only 1-1/2" diameter. You might have success with the small auger as well, so since you apparently have one, try it first and avoid the chemicals as much a possible.
