NAOMI PEEK
RECEPTION MANAGER & SALON COORDINATOR & BEAUTY THERAPIST

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 Senior Beauty Therapist here at The Waters Edge Retreat. I’ve been in the beauty industry for 6 years now & love all aspects especially nails, massage & facials. 

I’ve had experience working in both Salons and Spas.


I have completed many beauty courses throughout the years & I am always motivated to do more. Just recently completing Indian Head massage, Pregnancy massage & Eyebrow lamination courses here at The Waters Edge Retreat, and since leaving Truro College I completed Level 2 & 3 Beauty Therapy and Level 2 Business Administrator.

I would describe myself as having a friendly & outgoing personality, who has an ambition to work at a very high standard & look after all clients in a thorough & professional way. 

Lamorna is a Beauty Therapist who has been in the industry for almost 3 years. She has completed her level 2 qualification and is currently training in level 3.
Lamorna loves all beauty treatments but in particular, loves doing nails and creating free hand nail art.

She isn't afraid to try new things and challenge herself. Lamorna describes herself as creative, friendly and hard working and she always takes pride in her work.

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.

After working in Administration and Finance for over 15 years I found myself here at The Water’s Edge Retreat in the most luxurious and calm environment I have ever worked in! I loved the people and place so much I knew straight away I had changed my life path for the better.

I started off working on Reception increasing my knowledge of the beauty industry every day. I progressed to Reception Manager and Salon Coordinator and thoroughly enjoy helping the Salon run smoothly with procedures, spreadsheets and all the Geeky Peeky stuff!

After 3 years of being here I started my journey as a Beauty Therapist training in Eyelash Extensions and Lash Lift and Tint. Now I am an absolute Lash addict!! I love carrying out both of these treatments and using my artistic side to achieve the look you want whether it be a natural fluffy look or something a bit fuller and more dramatic.  

I am now preparing to extend my training in lashes and other areas of beauty this year and can’t wait to be able to offer more treatments and meet new clients. I am a people person and have always enjoyed meeting new people at Reception but I am loving having more time to really get to know my clients in the treatment room.    

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!
