Zoe Saldana is planning to cut her hair short.

The 'Star Trek' actress gets bored with her hairstyle easily and is debating whether she should chop her long locks off into a fashionable pixie cut.

She teased: ''At some point I might just want to chop it all off and go really short. I'll just wake up in the morning and, well ... you know.''

The 34-year-old beauty has a novel approach to getting a haircut and admits she likes to pluck up the courage at home and snip off her own hair before visiting the hairdressers.

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

The sexy star also revealed she is keen to return to her Domenican and Puerto Rican roots and give her hair a break by letting it revert to its natural Afro style.

Zoe added in an interview with InStyle Hair magazine: ''It's been eight months since my last straightening treatment, and I'm going to let it all grow.

''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.''
