When we opened Darren Michael Hairdressing in Oldham in April 2005 our aim was to create a salon at the forefront of the latest hairdressing techniques & trends, where clients could relax and de-stress knowing their hair was in safe hands.

We quickly established ourselves as the best hair salon in Greater Manchester, offering a wonderful range of hair services including hair cutting & styling, hair colouring, colour correction, men's hair styling and bridal hair.

Clients are greeted with a warm welcome and often comment on our exceptional customer service.  They love that we offer an iron-clad guarantee which means we will not stop until we have created a hairstyle you adore!  We also believe it is important you can keep your hair looking sensational long after you have left our salon, so we offer home haircare tips so you can feel good every day for life!

To start your hair journey with the top hairdressers in Oldham, please call 01706 880 900 to book in for a consultation so we can create the perfect hairstyle for you.

    Another lovely visit with Caroline, beautiful colour with my highlights and toner, and a fantastic cut. Very relaxing visit and of course covid safe. Very pleased, can’t wait for my next visit. Karen x

    As usual, I got another decent haircut and the staff were polite and friendly. They took all Covid precautions so even that wasn’t an issue.

    Another great experience, I don’t normally like getting my hair cut as I don’t like people standing too close to me but Darren was great.

    I cannot recommend Darren Michael Hairdressing enough! Perfect balance of professional yet friendly. All the team are excellent, whilst the salon itself is immaculate and welcoming. I had my colour done by Caroline during my latest visit - she had amazing vision and talked me through it carefully to make sure I was happy to go ahead. I love the results and I'm so glad I trusted her eye for what would suit me. The team here genuinely care about your hair and how you feel about it. It's no wonder they have so many happy returning clients.

    I have been a client for 41 years and as the salon has moved premises I have followed them to each salon (5 in all). I really think that says it all! It is a really pleasant salon which is spotlessly clean and all the staff are excellent, extremely friendly and professional. I thoroughly enjoy my visits and travel from South Chadderton.

    Had my hair cut by Rachel - love it. Rachel really finds out what you want from your cut and the result was perfect. My hair is quite straight but the finish was full of body and lasted really well.

    I have been going to Darren Michael hairdressing for a few months.. My hairdresser is called Rex.. he is absolutely lovely and looks after me whilst he is doing my hair.. He is honestly one of the best hairdressers around.. he listens to what you tell him you want and has given me the best hair cut I’ve ever had. Rex is very experienced at what he does and is a top bloke.. he is a credit to the salon and I’m lucky to have found him.

    Fantastic first visit! Kelsey was brilliant. She listened to everything I wanted to be able to do with my hair and combined that with styles that I liked to create a style perfect for me. I've had nothing but compliments since Saturday!
