Greetings Divas, my name is Tara Gilbert Ross and I’m the owner of Face Café Glam Bars and Cosmetics. Face Café is full service makeup/ retail salon dedicated to making women feel beautiful and powerful. After separating from the military, I had a hard time reconnecting to my femininity. I suffered from depression and anxiety. I would volunteer at the local Veteran Women Shelter and it was there I found my strength to push harder. It is my belief that as nurturers, we do better when we are assisting other heal. Face Café allows for women to build up other women. We Currently have five operating storefronts all owned by military connected women. Face Cafe Hope Mills, NC, Face Cafe High Point, NC . We have two upcoming stores Face Cafe Atlanta, GA Express Summer, 2020 and Face Face Charlotte Fall 2020 , NC, and International Expansion to Africa Winter 2020.
The name “Face Café” was created when my grandmother wanted to assist with the first location but stated the only thing she did well was “make coffee” so we incorporated faces and coffee in the name. She was the original greeter and coffee maker and we still offer free coffee with every service. While I know that Makeup does not heal all wounds, it is my belief that every step towards self-healing is a step in the right direction. Let’s move together!
