  • Choosing certain colors can inspire different feelings and moods. How do colors affect mood?

    Blue is the color of water, yellow is reminiscent of a sunshine and linked to happiness and green is a calming color that reminds many of the Earth. Some colors have very distinct and obvious moods and feeling associations, and it's not hard to see why.

    As you work toward becoming an esthetician, you'll learn that setting the mood is just as important as the treatment you're providing. You want people to feel as relaxed, soothed and comfortable during their appointment, and choosing the right color scheme in your decor and styling will make a huge impact.

    Here are some popular color options and what moods are associated with them:

    As we mentioned, yellow is the color of sunshine and light, so it makes sense that these hues are linked to feelings of optimism, joy, cheerfulness, warmth and energy. Brighter shades of yellow certainly grab attention while lighter ones can create a calming effect that still retains energy.

    Green is not only the color of nature, but it's also associated with health. According to, shades of green can have a positive effect on headaches or sensations of sadness because they stimulate feelings of freshness, harmony and balance. Green can also make people feel safe, so it can be a useful color to display in your treatment room.

    Like green, blue is also found in nature. The connection to water gives shades of blue a relaxing, calming and cleansing sense, which can help put people at ease and encourage calmness. As a cool color, blue also promotes tranquility.

    This earth tone can help people feel grounded and balanced, as brown is a neutral tone that creates a sense of peace as well as safety. Debbie Wiener of My Designing Solutions told Fox News that browns give her the impression of coziness, especially the darker, richer shades.

    This color is often associated with royalty, so it can create a sense of power and richness. Clients will certainly want to luxuriate during their skin care treatment, and a shade of purple can help inspire this. Purple combines the energy and vibrancy of red with the stability and peace of blue.

    When incorporating different colors into your decor, be sure to consider how the shades will play off of each other and what emotions they can evoke. Creating the right color palette will go a long way in helping men and women have the total package of a multisensory experience.
