Painting hair used to be very messy for me, until I decided to paint it more loosely from the start. It's one of those structures that fool beginner artists by tempting them to paint what they know, not what they see: Hair from some distance (e.g. a few meters) is a fuzzy mass, with no single hairs visible anywhere. Because it is so intricate and well-known a subject, though, you can have a lot of fun with different kinds of depiction like making it look like ribbons, scraggle it, dye it in wild colours - we'll always know what it is.
And fur, of course, is also hair. With just more different directions because it covers more of a body.
