BARBER ROGER CHRETIEN has been cutting hair in Biddeford for nearly 50 years. “I’m into my fifth generation,” he says.

In 1966, when Chretien began, the cost of a haircut was just $1.25. He got into the business after graduating from St. Louis High School in Biddeford and attending Hanson’s Barber School in Lewiston.

Here, Chretien, who runs Roger’s Barber Shop on Main Street, cuts Troy Cline’s hair. Cline, Wiscasset’s police chief, has been seeing Chretien since 1986, when he lived in York County. Now he stops by for a cut when he’s in town to visit friends and family. “I’m a people person,” Chretien says. “That’s what I enjoy, I enjoy being around people.”
