What Makes Darren Michael The Best Hairdressers in Oldham, Shaw & Rochdale

When we opened Darren Michael Hairdressing in Oldham in April 2004 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!

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.
