Color Coordinate Your Decor

Thought provoking articles have been published explaining the connection that individuals have to colors. Although color science is not exact or definitive, years of observations and testing has highlighted significant similarities over time. Depending on gender, age, and even education, individuals respond differently, both emotionally and subconsciously, to certain color combinations.

Overall, men generally prefer:
  • darker, earthy tones
Younger male generations:
  • are open to a wider variety of colors, due to their exposure to photo enhancing software (ie: Photoshop and Instagram)
Older males prefer:
  • simple, clean cut lines
  • basic color combinations
Well-educated individuals:
  • gravitate towards rich hues with sophisticated names
Blue-collar workers:
  • prefer simplistic primary colors
Each of these preferences should be taken into account for your design and barber shop decor selections.
