Seaborn plots can use different palettes. These palettes decide upon the colors to use in the plots. It doesn’t matter which data set you use, for any dataset you can change the palette.

The palettes have different names like “hls”, “Blues” and so on. These are some of the color palette choices you have. Other palettes include “deep”, “vlag” and “rocket”.
