Seaborn plots not showing up

Plots created using seaborn need to be displayed like ordinary matplotlib plots.
This can be done using the

function from matplotlib.

Originally I posted the solution to use the already imported matplotlib object from seaborn ( however this is considered to be a bad practice. Therefore, simply directly import the matplotlib.pyplot module and show your plots with

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

If the IPython notebook is used the inline backend can be invoked to remove the necessity of calling show after each plot. The respective magic is

%matplotlib inline
