Where is Allis?

ObscureSciFiBookFilter: Space opera-type book, wherein a cargo ship is taken over by pirates.

Main character's name is Allis, and she has long hair that she braids and wraps around her head. (She is a newbie and is castigated for having long hair in space.) There is a somewhat psychedelic hyperspace jump or something, in which Allis connects it to falling down the rabbit hole. No idea when I read this, though it was probably late 80s/early 90s.

Given the vagueness, Googling has been of no help. This has been nagging at my brain for years-- please help me find this book!

Jealousy and hate despoil her mind, until pirates strike and she does ...
