I have worked within the Beauty industry for over 20 years and choose to specialise in classic beauty therapy treatments. I developed the Retreat with the sole purpose of providing a high class therapy space where we could collectively work alongside each other to be promoted as the best therapy and well being center around. Two years on I now employ a team to meet the ever increasing needs of the business. We have grown so much whilst keeping our focus on the highest class treatments and products and offer so many exciting new treatments.

I am a fully qualified Beauty Therapist here at The Waters Edge Retreat. I’ve been in the beauty industry for 6 years now.  I’ve had experience working in both Salons and Spas.


I have just recently finished two apprenticeships at a salon in Truro which is part of Truro College, one being a Level 3 Advanced Nail Technician and the other being Level 2 Business Administrator.

I love all aspects of Beauty, but my passion is brow treatments, nails and Swedish massage.

I am very pleased to have joined the team at The Waters Edge Retreat, in a very calm and relaxing environment.

I recently moved to Cornwall from Birmingham where I worked at a large busy salon in the city. I was there for 14 years and thoroughly enjoyed it bringing with me a wealth of knowledge. I then worked in a Salon in Penryn when I first moved down to Cornwall until I found The Water's Edge Retreat.

 

I have over 20 years experience working as a hair stylist and knowledge in advanced cutting and colouring techniques having completed many London and Manchester training courses with Wella, Loreal, Toni & Guy, Sassoon and Patrick Cameron hair up. These include Ombre, Balayage, Air Touch and Baby Lights.

My passion is creating beautiful Bridal / Prom hair ups as I love to be part of their special day.

NAOMI PEEK

RECEPTION MANAGER & SALON COORDINATOR

I have been working in Administration and Finance for over 15 years. I am also a qualified Project Manager and had my own Project Management business before having my first child.

My career started in a Self Invested Pension company for high profile clients and I went on to work for the MOD and then when I moved back to Cornwall I worked for Cornwall Council for 9 years. I love being super organised, list making, problem solving and spreadsheets....I really love spreadsheets!!..I'm a bit of a Geeky Peeky!! 

Everyday is a learning day for me as I do not have a beauty background so I'm constantly increasing my knowledge

I can honestly say I have never been so happy in my work. I love meeting all our different clients and being in this wonderful space working with this wonderful team is truly the best!

 

So excited to add that now after 3 years of being here I have now started my journey as a Beauty Therapist and have recently qualified in Eyelash Extensions. I absolutely love it and can't wait to do more training so I am able to perform more treatments.
