The stylists at Eco Beauty Salon Spa cultivate natural beauty by using natural products—those made by Aveda, to be precise. Each of the company's haircare, skincare, and cosmetic formulas are made with plant- and flower-derived ingredients, and at least 89% of those ingredients hail from organic sources. These natural products elevate every one of the salon's treatments, from the essential-oil scalp massages that begin each cut and style to the slate of facials that rebalance complexions using customized masks and essential oils. Meanwhile, a happy hour menu available from 11–2 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday includes brow, lip, and face waxing packages, hair cuts and colors, and makeup touch ups.

While GBA's Saturday morning appointments are reserved for junior players, those older than 13 can schedule appointments from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday–Friday and until 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
