Learn more about the exclusively male spa, Gadabout Man in Tucson, Arizona, by reading this transcript of the interview between Skin Inc. magazine and Gadabout SalonSpas’ vice presidents Frank and Jana Westerbeke.
Skin Inc. magazine: What was the inspiration for starting Gadabout Man?
Gadabout Man vice presidents Frank and Jana Westerbeke: Gadabout Man is a place for men to feel comfortable and be able to express themselves. It is a place that they can call their own and where they can celebrate and talk with other men. This space gives them time and a place for themselves.
SI: What is the background of the founders?
Westerbekes: The key component of Gadabout Man is the male influence it has. One of the owners is a man, and it was designed for men by a man. The point is to keep a day spa feel, but with a masculine twist.
