Zoe Saldana - Zoe Saldana appreciates her looks

Zoe Saldana was raised to have a ''strong sense of self''.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star - who split from Bradley Cooper earlier this year - has revealed she always trusts her instincts and appreciates her good looks.

The 34-year-old actress told the new issue of InStyle Hair magazine: ''My mom raised my sisters and I with a strong sense of self. [My mother] always said, 'Honey, there is nothing that a red lipstick and a pair of red shoes can't heal, cure, or solve.' And I absolutely believe that. They can get you out of anything, even the biggest funk of your life.''

Zoe, who is well known for her brave sense of style, also revealed that although she has a full time stylist, she regularly makes drastic decisions alone when it comes to her appearance and she would love to follow in Charlize Theron's footsteps by chopping off all of her hair some day.

She explained: ''If I want to chop off my 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!

''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.

''At some point I want to chop mine off and learn to enhance my other virtues, instead of depending so much on my hair.''

South African actress Charlize previously revealed that shaving her head for her role in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' was the most ''freeing thing'' she's ever done.

The 37-year-old star said: ''It's the most freeing thing. I highly recommend it. I think every woman should do it. I had two huge garbage bags full of hair products. It's so freeing.''
