Katie Zacharias


I am originally from Amery, Wisconsin but have a lot of family in the Thorp area. I have been married for 6 years to my husband George and we have two beautiful children that keep us very busy.  I moved to Thorp when I graduated from beauty school in 2013 and I have been behind the chair doing hair in the area since then.  I always dreamed of moving to Thorp and taking over my Aunt Leslie's hair salon. That dream became a reality in October of 2022. We gave the salon a face lift with hopes of doing a full remodel in 2023 (stay tuned!)  I am very passionate about educating my clients on how to keep their hair healthy with tips, tricks, and the perfect product regimen. It is important to me that the health of my client's hair comes first. I have a love for creating the perfect blonde but also enjoy doing all types of hair coloring.  I offer haircuts, colors, styles, waxing and recently just got certified in hand tied weft extensions. I also travel to do styling for your special events.  It is important to me to stay up to date on education so I can offer all of my clients the newest trends.  I look forward to seeing you at West Side Salon.

I have lived in Thorp my whole life.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 27 years and we are blessed with 2 daughters.  I have been a hairstylist for 30 years and had the pleasure of owning my own salon for 26 years! I have now passed the torch but will still be behind the chair at West Side Salon doing what I love.  I can take care of all your basic hair care needs including haircuts, coloring, perms, styling, and waxing.

I have lived in the Thorp area for 48 years. Most of those years I have done perms, colors, hilites, shampoo styles, and haircuts for all ages.  I think the best part about doing hair for so many years is making people feel good about themselves after I get done with their hair, the smiles, and the "Thank-Yous" I get when they leave the salon.  It gives me great satisfaction to make everyone feel good about themselves.  I also get a lot of practice with my family.  I have my husband, 4 married children, and 12 wonderful grandchildren.  Between my family and my customers I keep very busy.  I look forward to seeing you at West Side Salon.
