    Yesterday lovely Amanda came to the rescue after I’d had a disastrous haircut somewhere else. She fitted me in and made a beautiful job of it.. putting me at ease straight away even though (to me) it seemed impossible to do anything to make it right. This was my first visit to Darren Michael and I came out completely delighted.

    I love this salon!!! I’ve been going to Darren Michael for years. I disappeared for a while after lockdown as I found someone who’d come to my home (even during lockdown - tut, tut!), but my “bargain” hairdresser destroyed my hair! She bleached it to death! I was desperate to fix my hair which had transformed into candy floss, so I decided to go back to Darren Michael. Caroline has helped me to reconstruct my hair, bring it back into good condition, give me a colour which suits my skin colour and a cut to make the best of my natural curls. I now love my hair! After 46 years of hating my (extremely) curly hair, fighting my curls and burning it with straighteners, Caroline has helped me to appreciate the natural beauty of my hair by giving me a style which suits me and my lifestyle. I wanted an easy style which I wouldn’t have to spend too much time doing at home and a colour which would cover my grey. Caroline took the time to listen to me, taking into account what I wanted but then also advised me on what I could do with my hair (because it had been bleached), how to bring it back into good condition and how to style it at home. It has taken time to sort out my hair but every time I’ve been to the salon my hair has felt better and better until I am now finally happy with the condition it’s in. I also want to reference the excellent service you receive at the salon. Everyone goes out of their way to be friendly and polite and make you feel welcome. The atmosphere is lovely and the refreshments are a nice touch. I highly recommend this friendly, professional salon which offers quality services and extremely well trained staff. I look forward to going - it’s my treat and I always leave happy.

    Great salon with professional staff who always go above and beyond. Very relaxed atmosphere and always a friendly smile from Darren and the girls. Caroline always takes the time to listen and offer advice about the cut/colour and the end result is always fantastic. If your looking for a professional salon with skilled and knowledgeable staff Darren Michael Hairdressing is the place to go.

    Salon Review
    From the moment you enter the salon you are greeted by friendly people. Darren made me feel relaxed and listened to what I wanted done, he was very attentive and made sure that I was comfortable throughout. Once he got those magic scissors and his fantastic skills going my hair was soon transformed into a manageable but stylish look just as I had requested. Thank you so much for patience and care.

    Darren has been cutting my hair since he was a young lad. Wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else or letting any other hairdressers cut my hair all the staff are brilliant. Like visiting family. Well. Worth the 200 mile round trip.

    It was my first visit to the salon and Amanda and Caroline were very welcoming and made me feel relaxed. Caroline who did my pixie haircut was very attentive and helpful and gave me very sensible advice. It was a relaxing, enjoyable experience and I hope to return again. Thank you.

    Will always give 5 stars as I always get the best service, all staff are fantastic and even though a different stylist may look after me, my hair is still fab when I leave, my new stylist Amanda listens and recommends so very happy.
    Salon Review
    I have been going to DM for almost 20 years my hairdresser left recently and Amanda did my hair. I was nervous being used to one person for so long yet Amanda did an amazing job she went to great lengths to get me the result I wanted and she did an amazing job. I love my hair and will only ever go to Darren Michaels

    I have been using the Elite service for approx 2 years. This saves me ££££\'s! All the staff are professional & friendly. They really go that extra mile to make you feel comfortable & cared for. My hair was dry & in poor condition, but now due to the products used & specialist care it is lovely & soft & no longer falling out. Thank you team DM!

    Just had my second visit after moving into the area in November 22. I was impressed with the care taken to understand my needs and the result both times - first a cut and blow dry and second a colour cut and blow dry - was great. Overall a really good experience and I\'m very happy to have found this salon.
