Moved to Graphic Design.

Photoshop is how these types of effects are created. Do a search for Photoshop tutorials, you will find plenty to choose from.

Good lighting in the original shot can help alot, but without that, photoshop can help. Darker blacks can be achieved by burning. Her hair can be made to look glossy by using a tiny brush and "dodging" it to bring out high lights. It requires a little playing around to get your own feel for it.

To get those type of effects, those photos were probably shot in a RAW lossless format to start with. If you are starting with a jpeg, this could be a lot of work getting them to look like this. PS alone cannot do much because a jpeg has been very compressed to start with.

If you have PS, get the camera raw plugin. Then open the image in PS camera raw or Bridge Camera raw (ctrl + R in windows). Experiment with the exposure or white balance etc. There are settings for soft skin tones, colors etc. Use the histogram to adjust the blacks to the darkness that you want. C Raw will let you adjust all the main color ranges individually.

To get those skin textures it looks like the photographer used a mid f stop setting and a long shutter speed. (my guess)

If you need help, use the adobe help for camera raw.

With a jpeg, over 80% of the image data is removed which makes it limited as to what you can do. Also a jpeg image can start to deteriorate with a lot of editing. Raw images do not deteriate regardless of how much editing you do.

If you have a DSLR or can get the image in a raw format, then you can do anything you want to it since a RAW image is unprocessed data with no compression added. After you edit the image, you can then open it in PS and then convert it to a viewable/printable format such as jpeg. Camera raw works with jpegs or raw images except it can only work with the data provided in the image.

Hmm, that's strange, I was thinking the exact opposite :P
