The team behind Barber Surgeons Guild®
Founder & CEO
Dr. Justin E. Rome, MD, Founder and CEO of Barber Surgeons Guild®, is devoted to exceptional work, patient satisfaction, and consultations that are thorough and educational yet personable. He’s also the pioneering force behind the procedures and protocols that we offer.
Dr. Rome has spent years finely honing his craft by performing over a thousand robotic hair restoration procedures. His expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery is only surpassed by his emphasis on providing real results to every client. This is why he’s regarded as a leader in the area of robotic hair transplantation.
Prior to founding BSG, Dr. Rome had a private practice in Beverly Hills, CA, where he became known and respected for excellence in the hair restoration world. He always felt something was lacking in the space, specifically, there was not enough attention to hairstyle in hair restoration. With the addition of a luxury grooming salon with Master Barbers, barbers and surgeons together we’re able to offer collaborative insight into restoring hairstyles.
Dr. Rome completed a Master’s Degree from Boston University, his Medical Degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, an Internship and Residency at Lenox Hill Hospital and Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, and a Fellowship in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery and Hair Restoration in Orlando, Florida.
Today, many people regard Dr. Rome as an authority in the field of robotic hair restoration. ARTAS® elected him to train other doctors to perform this procedure, which takes considerable skill, training, and credentials.

In the startup environment, Greg was able to take on many different roles such as, sales, marketing, customer service, and training. In 2013 he became the Head of Operations, traveling the globe helping to launch new doctors’ practices. Looking for a challenge and seeing a major need for the company, in 2015 Greg took on a new role as the head of Business Development for NYC. In this role, he could use his talents in sales and creative marketing.
Seeing the true potential for hair restoration and the future growth in men’s aesthetics, Greg was able to find a role where he could combine his 20 years of professional experience. In 2017 he formed a partnership with Dr. Rome and became the VP of Operations for Barber Surgeons Guild®.
