After Pony Lee went to beauty school and barber school, and as he was going through his gender transition, he realized if he wanted to continue working in the industry he had to carve a space for someone like him. In 2012 he opened Folklore Salon & Barber, an openly queer-owned shop to service the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. Pony and his team understand the technical side of hair as beauty professionals, and also the importance of identity as queer people. Folkore’s pricing is not gendered, each haircut is priced on length and complexity, while traditional barber cuts and beard trims have set prices.
