Naomi wears a long, cool blonde weave. I know that many of you are thinking you can wear this or any color hair when you are a supermodel.

But light blonde hair looks great on black women in general because it provides a balance of dark and light against your skin, it reflects a fun personality. This look says "I'm extroverted and I want you to notice."

Kelly Rowland in Honey and Brown Colored Hair

Kelly, who usually can be seen in black hair, switches up her look by wearing two-tone hair that she cleverly matches with her lipstick.

This look gives you a golden halo effect around your head. Wearing a honey and brown colored wig, weave, or dye allows you to go blonder without an overly dramatic effect.

You can wear long hair, but can can also wear these colors in short, manageable, and feminine hairstyles too.

Royce Reed in Medium Brown Hair

What could be better on milk chocolate skin that chocolate hair? I was happy to see the sporty Royce switch up her dark locks for this amber hue.

It's clear that Royce can both dance AND has excellent beauty sense. You can't go wrong with medium brown.

You can't go wrong with the color mother nature gave you. The classy Ms. Williams has always worn her hair black, and it is an excellent choice that makes her blue eyes stand out, and her brown skin glow. Whenever you doubt what color hair you should wear, go with what you were born with.
