Zoe Saldana has beautiful, thick, shiny hair, so it's only natural she would cover InStyle magazine's annual Hair Issue!
The actress looks ethereal in a seafoam green draped dress with her glossy tresses tossed over her shoulder.
And since this is the Hair Issue after all, she waxes philosophical about her locks, telling the mag:
"If I want to chop off half my hair, I’ll take scissors and do one side before I even go to the hairdresser. For me, it’s all about trusting my instinct. Plus, that way I can’t change my mind! At some point I want to chop mine off and learn to enhance my other virtues, instead of depending so much on my hair."
She also reveals a desire to get back to her roots (pun totally intended), saying:
"It’s been eight months since my last straightening treatment, and I’m going to let it all grow out. 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."
The 34-year-old also talks about the importance of hair in her culture.
"In Latino culture, hair carries a lot of history, a lot of weight, and a lot of energy. I always liked my hair. I never wanted to have any other skin but my own, any other hair but my own. Women who spend so much of their lives wanting to have something else miss out on learning to appreciate what they do have."
Words of wisdom, peeps!
