Gigi Sakr owner of Gigi of Westport, writes columnist Dan Woog, "is a skincare specialist and certified medical aesthetician. That sounds like a First World punchline. But over the years, she and her business ó Gigi of Westport ó have helped many Westporters in many ways. Sheís helped good-looking women look better, sure. But sheís done the same for unemployed women desperate for work, and sheís boosted the self-esteem of acne-scarred teenagers ... According to Sakr, the best part about being in Westport is working with long-time clients as they age. A woman in her 90s still drove herself to the salon. Those appointments were highlights of her ó and Sakrís ó day."
