Spring 2009 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.”
