Default Trying to figure out mutation!

Hi everyone =D So I've been really interested in what my budgie is! I noticed that she doesn't have any cheek markings! She also has a big white bald patch on the back of her head. I've got pictures posted here.
https://talkbudgies.com/showthread.php?t=105922
Please help! I've tried doing research but I just can't figure it out!!!
Oh she also has white wings with a little black/grey sprinkled at just the very tops of her wings, and a full white tail. Also when she lifts her wings, a full blue back =o

I'm making a guess but maybe Double Factor Dominant Pied?

I think you're right that she's some kind of pied. Her bars go way down! I don't think I've ever seen that before! Have you got a picture of her back? She looks like she may be cinnamon too.

I think she's a dominant pied [if she have a white spot on her back head]

Can you please post a picture of her from the back and maybe one from the side in natural light with no flash? Can you see visible iris rings? I'm thinking she may be a DF dominant pied or a combination of recessive and dominant pied. If you can post more pics, we can better help you.

She's amazing, I've never seen anything like her!
Do you think she could have blackface genes...? That's all I can come up with
