Find Your Shade: Dark Skin
The whole idea here is to create contrast between your hair and your complexionwhether that means going lighter or darker, explains Dorram. "If your hair color is too close to your skin tone, your features will disappear." Deep, dark tones of espresso and inky black look striking next to blue-based complexions like Alex Wek's. If you have warm skin like Viola Davis, opt for maple brown, mahogany, toffee, and other rich, warm colors to bring out the apricot undertones in your skin.
