Painting hair particles not depending on hair direction

Ok I know how to paint hair - it actually uses material from object, and i can make it to have more colors from bottom to top via color ramp, but how to make feather like one on image, thing is that hair strands on feather are going upwards but color on it (darker brown) is more horizontal so how can i do that, is that even possible to do?

I am sure you have the answer but still. Maybe this what you want.
