I've been noticing around the college campus that there are a lot of these type of women, kind of the 'Amy Lee' look... black hair, dark eyes, but usually fare white skin and speak without any accent (noticiable.)
Black hair is actually the most common hair color, and it's genetically dominant. Skin tones that come with it also vary widely. It'd be really hard to pinpoint a specific ethnicity without seeing a facial structure. It's safe to guess that all of them are probably from different ethnic backgrounds. It's just way too common.
The darker the hair or skin, the more towards the equator the the persons ancestors are from, due to pigment adaptation to the heavier sun rays and heat. A person with black hair and dark eyes must have distant black relatives or any relative with black hair (or dark eyes) in their dna. Since dark hair and dark eye pigments are most dominant in dna, black hair and ect can be passed down generations and still be active in a persons genome.
