Simon is right on, and Alex gives up to easy. Try using one strobe to light their face and use the other to pump some light behind it to provide some color seperation. Oh yeah, try getting closer. It's not a hairy but it's black, from Isla de Coco.

For reasons best known to itself the 'Thanks' button is missing from the above post...so I hope 'Thanks Steve' will do just fine...

I guess you could try to use strong lighting but snooting it more or less, so you don't have the background....
It's not black, but this kind of shot can probably end up well :

I would try and fill the frame with it as much as possible too.
I really like Steve's version!
