Years ago, Barbara Bastian's grandmother told her, "If you only have a tube of lipstick, put it on and you'll feel good." Barbara's mother added some similarly sage advice: "Make sure you clean your face and change your hairstyle daily." Both maxims still hold an important place in beauty regimens, and it's their simplicity and timelessness that helps inform Barbara's beauty business as well. Certified in a variety of treatments, from makeup artistry to laser cosmetics and facials, Barbara—the brainchild behind Atlanta's Makeover Mama—works to help her clients' natural beauty shine through.

Before a massage or facial at Red Carpet Salon and Spa, clients fill out a consultation card that provides detailed insight on their specific therapeutic or skincare needs. This allows the massage therapist or aesthetician to develop a personalized treatment plan. After the treatment, the spa pro sits down with clients and dishes tips on how they can improve their overall health and well being outside the spa, in their everyday life, on their horse, atop an inflatable tube, in a horse water park. Aside from massage and facial treatments, the salon specializes in Redken haircare services, which are performed in a spacious studio among freestanding salon stations and a reflective floor of black tiles.
