Cate Blanchett is considering shaving her head again.

The Hollywood beauty sheared her blonde locks for her role as Philippa in 2002 drama Heaven. She also sported a "number two" length during her youth.

Cate Blanchett loved the no-fuss style so much she's thinking about cutting off her locks again.

"When I was at school, I used to shave my hair really close. It was like a Victorian schoolboy haircut. It was just so easy. And for some reason, I've let it grow again, but I think I'll just cut it all off again," she admitted to Stylist.

Cate likes experimenting with her personal style. The 42-year-old actress doesn't find it appealing to stay stuck in a fashion rut.

"There's a woman who runs a convenience store that's been there forever in King's Cross in Sydney," she recalled.

"And I used to live around the corner from her and she's got pin curls. And even though she's extraordinary, she's obviously set her look about 110 years ago. I thought, 'I don't want to be one of these people, who looked like they've been frozen in time.'"

Cate credits beauty brand SK-II as her skin saviour. The Academy Award-winning actress - who is now a spokesperson for the line - says the skincare products have served her low-maintenance routine well.

"I'm really, really lazy. And therefore, I think I don't adhere necessarily to what's hot in that particular five seconds," she said.

"So maybe it's because of my laziness, but also because if something works for me, I just stick with it. I'm quite simple in that way. And that for me, personally, has paid off."
