In this article, we’ll go beyond the traditional black and show you a variety of other colors that can complement and accentuate the beauty of dark-skinned individuals when incorporated into protective styles.

Eye catching? Yes. Bold choice? Maybe. Totally perfect for dark skin? Definitely. You’re probably already doubting but red complements rich skin tones beautifully. Dark-skinned individuals can pull off this fiery hue with grace, making it a stunning choice for protective styles like braids.
