    The first time she appeared in comics, there was no black thing in her hair at all:

    And there's also the fact that at one point the circle on the back of her hair turned into two circles:

    It's so inconsistent that the only logical explanation is that she sometimes uses a headband and sometimes she dyes it for whatever reason. Or sometimes her inhuman nature just spontaneously changes the color of her hair, because why the hell not? Her sister has hair-related powers, so maybe it's in the Amaquelin genes.

    Anyway, looking at old art, I do believe the original intent was for her to be wearing a band and other artists just got it wrong in the future.

    I also heard that originally, it was a head band. Somewhere around late '90's or 2000, it became her hair wave pattern.

    I’m going to say she left the bands on for so long that they left a dark mark on her hair.

    No-Prize is mine.

    Oh, and I love the way she looks masked.
