This study was selected because the Negro race is one that possess many color hues and because there is little or no work done toward helping these various colored women select colors that will bring out their natural charm. While this is not a complete treatment of color and color harmony it is hoped that it will serve as a basis for further study and will make more colored women color conscious, if nothing more.

Many books, periodicals, and pamplets are frequently written concerning the most suitable colors for blonds, brunetts, and auburns, but the Negro has more than these three types, and unfortunately there has been little or no material written to cover the more various hued group.

There is a real need for a better appreciation and understanding of the principles of color and color harmony in their application in the home, in dress and in business, and much could be added to the enjoyment of life through a greater feeling for color effects, both in nature and in art.
