I think the first step is to determine if your girl is doing normal grooming of her feet or if it really is excessive. I would not assume she's getting back at you or that it is a behavioral issue. You could try to clip the hair but if it is a medical condition such as allergies, this will likely not help. Cats with allergies tend to get itchy skin, rather than a stuffed up head like us. Even if the skin looks normal I would think about allergies or another medical condition. Our cats can be allergic to things in the air, dust and often things they come in contact with like certain ingredients in litter, or fabrics like wool. It would be ideal to examine your environment and also consult your veterinarian on what you can do to make your calico more comfortable and get to the bottom of her hair pulling.
