DARK HAIR FOR YOUR SKIN TONE
Darker hair looks great on people with all skin tones, light (think Katie Perry), medium (think Katie Holmes or Meagan Fox) and dark skin tones (think Kim Kardashian). If you have dark skin then there is no question that it will look good on you, but you probably already knew that!
LIGHT SKIN TONES
Light skin toned gals should opt for a few shades darker, jet black or black black will look particularly unnatural and will not stick to your natural pigments, fading out after a few shampoos.

MEDIUM SKIN TONES
Ladies with medium skin tone and with yellow undertones should select a dark brown rather than a black and avoid red/black hues as this will highlight the undertones.

OlIVE SKIN TONES
If you have darker skin tones then you can go to the extreme with a dark brown coloring or even black black. Avoide blue/black tones as they won’t compliment your olive complexion.
