Zoë Saldana: Super-Short Hair May Be In My Future

Zoë Saldana‘s close with her longtime hairdresser, Mara Roszak, but her confession in the latest issue of InStyle Hair may be enough to give Roszak nightmares.

“If I want to chop off my hair, I’ll take scissors and do one side before I even go to the hairdresser,” she says. “It’s all about trusting my instincts. Plus, that way I can’t change my mind!”

And what’s the likelihood that we’ll see the perpetually stylish star with Hollywood’s hottest hairstyle, the pixie, sometime soon? “At some point I might just want to chop it all off and go really short,” she says. “I’ll just wake up in the morning and, well … you know.”

Also on Saldana’s tress wish list: To return to her naturally curly texture. “It’s been eight months since my last straightening treatment, and I’m going to let it all grow out,” she tells the magazine (see her changing looks here). “It’s been a long time since I’ve woken up with my hair looking like an Afro. I can’t wait to have that again.”

For lots more hair and beauty talk from the stunning star (including the red lipsticks she can’t live without), pick up InStyle Hair, on stands April 5, watch exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and try on her hairstyles through the years here!

Then tell us: Would you rather see Saldana with curly hair or a super-short cut?

I think the short hair and pixie cut have been done and overdone lately.Curly hair would look nice on her.

@Rain lol. I know. It’s a ridiculous excuse for an article.

Yuck on the Afro. It will reaffirm the stereotype that she is black.

NO!!! Keep it long! Short hair and pixie cut do not look good on some women. It’s same thing that I’ve seen on women at work and it’s doesn’t look great on them. Let’s hear for long hair!

@susan Excuse me Zoe Saldana is black – that is not a stereotype. I think that is the dumbest statement I have seen written in a longtime. SMH

Tony Moschetti on

This is a joke right? Does anyone with a single living brain cell give a rat’s rear end about this kind of mindless nonsense.

And we wonder why our country is so mucked up!

Baronessa Macchia Nera on

Sounds like a good idea as long as her head goes with it.

R. Your wrong & Susan is correct. Not that it should matter but she is Dominican & Puerto Rican.
