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.

    Visited the salon yesterday with Caroline . Highlights and a trim, hair beautiful as usual. Hair in lovely condition and cut just how I wanted it. I really enjoy my visit and how relaxing it is, looking forward to next time. Thank you Caroline.

    Darren did a fantastic job of my colour this week. He listened to the ideas I had as I wasn’t completely sure what I wanted and he gave me some good advice on the best options for my hair and after care. He was more than happy to make some additional changes the day after when I’d decided I wanted to tweak it a bit. Such a lovely guy and the staff are so friendly and make you feel comfortable. Completely recommend them for all hair care needs and services. Thanks Darren and the team.

    I can’t speak highly enough of Caroline. She has cut my hair for several months now and never fails to please.Her attitude is professional, pleasant and considerate and her memory in relation to her clients is first class.

    The one who receives calls does not respect customers and hangs up the phone when asked It’s rude

    This was my first visit to the salon as only just moved to the area. My previous hairdresser had cut my hair for 30 years, so I was very apprehensive. I had caused a lot of damage through home bleaching but Caroline was fantastic and I was very impressed. I will be returning in the future!

    Been a very happy customer for many years, the staff are always friendly. Everything is about making the customer feel safe, relaxed and feeling fabulous with excellent skills from the stylists. Last year was tops, with my daughter’s wedding group being so pampered with so many different styles, such a fun experience for the special day. Sue

    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.
