The sports and style icon shows her favorite looks by wellaflex styling expert Sascha Breuer.
Spring is right outside the door and with it flows a new breeze through the world of fashion and beauty. After a long winter it is
now the perfect time for many women to reinvent themselves and their styling. Outfits in bright colors and made of light fabrics
bring with them a new momentum and also make-up and hairstyling again shows more facets in spring.
“Spring traditionally is the time to cut of those old tresses and to give some new impulses to one’s styling”, knows London based
wellaflex Styling Expert Sascha Breuer. “Matching the revival of nature freshness and lightness are the absolute focus when it comes
to the styling of hair. This is why light cuts that bring much movement into the hair are the winners of the next season. The trend
goes away again from the graphical looks, which were popular last year and we’ll again see softly layered styles that represent the
new natural looks,” says Sascha Breuer.
The top stylist has realized this new look on wellaflex spokes model Franziska van Almsick: “I have chosen a softly layered half
way look, that flows lightly and naturally and most of all it is very flexible. Fanziska’s old cut was stricter and strongly framed
her face. The new cut pronounces her high cheekbones and brings out her beautiful face much better.
With this length of hair it is
possible to create a more natural and flexible styling. And that is especially important for a busy woman like Franziska.” This is
why the former world class swimmer does not just start into the new season with many new projects but also with fresh looks. Star
stylist Sascha Breuer shows exclusively for wellaflex which styling options Franziska van Almsick has for her half way look in the warm season.
Fitness Look: Sporty Outward Swing Full of Life
After the long winter months many women feel that they need more movement and they engage in sporty activities more often again.
Even after her time as an active athlete, fitness is still a very important topic for Franziska van Almsick. Even though today it
is not about breaking records anymore.
Franziska van Almsick: “Sports is just a part of life for me. Of course it is not always my first priority like in
the time of my swimming career. But in a full life with family and career regular exercising is a great balance. I just love it
to really go for it every now and then. “The perfect companion is an uncomplicated hairstyle, that smoothly follows every move,
says Sascha Breuer, wellaflex Styling Expert.
Sascha Breuer: “The sporty outward swing is ideal on an active day or for a visit to the gym. You can style it
fast and easy; it allows every movement and gives Franziska a great, fresh look.”
This is how it works:
After washing the hair use a wide tooth comb to apply a golf ball sized amount of wellaflex Hydro Style mousse to give it natural
volume and reliable hold. The hair will be perfectly protected from the hot blow drying air and in addition it receives much moisture.
Lean the head to the side and use a skeleton brush to brush the hair against its direction of growth – this creates much volume at
The outward swing can be styled by rolling the ends of the hair around a large round brush and quickly dry over or just
use a flatiron. Here, you slide the iron through sections of hair and give it the outward turn at the ends. To finish it all evenly
mist on wellaflex Hydro Style hairspray from a distance of about 20cm, paying much attention to the ends of the hair. This way the
look can make it through all activities and is at the same time protected from loss of moisture and UV rays.
