No matter how good you think your skills with a hairdryer are, you know deep down that you can’t beat a professional blow-dry. Our stylists will be able to transform your hair to your desired look in no time, however if you’re stuck for inspiration then why not try one of our traditional styles.

Straight: A sleek straight style will never go out of fashion, however it is a hair style that is especially popular at the moment and is one of this years biggest trends. Straight hair that has been flat ironed at home can tend to look limp, lifeless and dry – none of these problems will occur with a straight blow-dry from one of the Darren Michael team. Our expert stylists will add root volume and movement into hair, leaving a glossy natural look.

Waves: If a straight style isn’t for you then  why not some waves? Waves suit all face shapes and hair styles and give a beautifully feminine look. Waves are notoriously hard to achieve at home – they are either too loose or too tight and tend to drop. We have an extensive range of brushes and products, allowing us to create your desired look.

Bobs: If you have a bob you may feel like there is no way to zhoosh it up for a special occasion or everyday glamour. Here at Darren Michael we beg to differ! A blow-dry is the perfect way to give your bob or short crop a new lease of life, adding volume and shine.

Our Blown Away service will cost £21.

Curls will never go out of style and the shape and style can vary dramatically – whether you fancy a big bouncy Cheryl Cole or a sultry and sexy Marilyn Monroe, our expert team will be able to create the look that you’re after.

There are two main benefits to visiting our style bar for perfect curls – firstly the speedy service and secondly fabulous natural looking curls. When people create fast curls at home they tend to use curling wands or heated rollers, both methods that remain tedious and produce unnatural looking uniform curls.

The expert stylists at Darren Michael use an array of tried and tested techniques to create natural looking curls that last.

The Curls World service is priced at £24.

Buns: Buns have always been considered a classic way of wearing your hair up and they can be easily adapted to suit your individual style. If you’re going to a chic evening event then why not try a sexy structured up to, however a looser more natural looking bun may be perfect for a day occasion.
