Commisso and (Good) Company Hair & Skin Treats

The Hair and Skin Beauty Professionals of Commisso and Company
Port Washington, NY Long Island's north shore has one of the best kept beauty secrets going. The Commisso family, starting with Tony and Ida have been in the hair business with a presence in that community for more than 27 years. As 20+ year members of the Society of the World Inter Coiffure their "roots" reach all the way back to Italy where the family patriarch, Tony Commisso said it all began.

Commisso and Company is the next generation's take on cutting edge hair styling and spa services as this salon is the brainchild of Tony and Ida Commisso's children.
Located at 30 Main Street, Port Washington and with an online presence at CommissoandCompany.com, this full service salon occupies two 5,000 square foot floors. The upper level offers most every hair salon service available from treatments to coloring, cuts and blowouts to name a few. The lower level is the domain of sumptuous day spa services as offered by JnK Skincare. Everything from European Facials, (I had the Chocolate Mousse Facial), LED Treatments, body waxing and eyelash extensions.

JnK Skin Care Spa
I really enjoyed my facial with accomplished esthetician, Katia Puracchio. Classical music played as she took me through nearly an hour of pampering massage and skincare treatments. Really you haven't lived until you've had their Chocolate Mousse Facial! I've had European Facials but this was off the chart superior. I also had the Organic Fruit Acid Peel which left my skin visibly smoother and moisturized. The treatment table elevated my feet and was very comfortable.

What to Use at Home:
It's obvious that you can't take these luxurious spa treatments home as they have to be applied by a licensed esthetician. All the same, there are a few products that help "bring the spa home" for you. Karin Herzog's Chocolate! Face Cream with O2 (oxygen) is very similar to the Chocolate Mousse and Oxygen Facial I received from Katia. This is a rich Swiss Chocolate comfort cream with natural cocao created by Dr. Paul and Karin Herzog. Each time I use it I think of JnK's decadent Chocolate Mousse Facial!

On the upper level, my photographer, Gina was undergoing a Keratin Treatment with hair stylist Dominic Commisso. Dominic discussed the salon's on-going training and classes offered throughout the week. He mentioned how this allowed all of the stylists to improve their skills on a consistent level. Dominic did mention that certain stylists had their own forte but across the board, they are equally proficient. As an example, one of the Commisso brothers is especially good at coloring. Many come to him just for that service.

Hair Products to Use at Home:
Commisso and Company offers a wide variety of high end hair care and styling products including offerings from Bumble and bumble as well as Oribe. This is an important feature of a top quality salon. Having these products at home can help to maintain your style and hair condition. Here are some of the products we took home after a Keratin Treatment and Blow Out:

Bumble and bumble - Oribe styling products to take home

Bumble and bumble Bb Tonic Lotion was used for my blow out along with a large round brush and dryer. Ilyssa sprayed just a bit in my hair and began lifting at the roots...the trademark of a proper blow out. Bumble and bumble products are infused with a lot of mint based herbs like tea tree, peppermint and rosemary which gives dark hair a very high shine. The Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil is very rich in grapeseed, almond and olive oils so you only need one pump. The other products are recommended for wash and wear, curly/beach-wavy styles.

The Commisso and Company team of pro stylists and JnK estheticians
Commisso and Company is a family run and operated full service hair salon. The level of professionalism we experienced was just what we would expect from a top tier NYC establishment. Their one on one consultations, treatments and hair styling services build trust and confidence to put your hair in their hands. The spa services offered by JnK Skin Care are equally on par with the top rated spa in New Jersey, which we visited at Crystal Springs Resort. Definitely check them out online or give them a call for an appointment. Visit them online at CommissoandCompany.com for more information.
