Their appearance is somewhat ambiguous, but The Two Towers gives a detailed description of a slain Haradrim warrior that Frodo and Sam encounter. He is described as having brown skin, with black hair that is braided with gold. He wore a scarlet tunic, as did the other warriors, and a gold collar. His weapon and armour are simply described as a scimitar and a corslet of brazen plate. This suggests that the Haradrim are similar to Africans; those of "Near Harad" more like Arabs or Berbers, and "Far Harad" more like sub-saharan Africans. Of course, the "Haradrim" are actually a group of nations from the region of Harad, so there was probably much variation in appearance between differing groups of Haradrim.
