Evil Lyn has a better design than Revelation Teela, but she looks pretty bad without her headdress.
I dunno, it just seems like the animators didn't know what to do with her hair.
Oddly she looked just fine without it in the old shows.
The 80's design is a little off, but it was certainly unique to see a female character with short hair like that.
The 2002 design pretty much perfected Evil Lyn. So of course they tampered with it.
