comment Representing a value in an output as a self defined variable
While accepted R.M.'s answer for being the most generalizable solution to my issue. I just wanted to mention that your solution is easiest to implement and ended up being the one that I used for my particular task.

@R.M Well, a general solution would be kinda neat, that's a little more than I'd had in mind. I was just thinking I could define a symbol for say the primitive 3rd root of unity and have mathematica replace (-1)^{1/3} with that symbol whenever it appears.

@R.M Thanks for the tip! I didn't realize I had to do that.
