About Folk Barbershop
A gentleman should be able to get a great haircut and impeccable grooming services anywhere in the city. This commonsensible idea was what compelled Brian Corella, Paul Aniceto, Icko Lacandazo, Kevin Gabon, and John Paul Vejano to put up a barbershop bent on delivering good pampering experience in Escolta—an area that used to be known more for its history rather than modern-day comforts and services. The group named their barbershop Folk 1006, derived from “folk,” which means common people, and “1006,” the area code of the Binondo district where Escolta is located. In short, it refers to the “people of Escolta.” From Folk 1006, it now evolved into Folk Barbershop and Retail. Brian Corella is one of the co-founders of Folk Barbershop and Retail and the entrepreneur behind The Maverick PH - a line of artisanal hair products for men made from locally sourced materials and self-brewed by the founder himself. Brian draws inspiration for his pomade variants from local Filipino customs and locally-produced products.
