Season 1  |  Episode 4  |  ABC2  |  November 25, 2012

Not only has she got pink hair extensions, painted on eyebrows and superman hotpants, Starlady's a youth worker in some of Australia's most remote places. Using an unusual set of tools this flamboyant hairdresser spends her time travelling thousands of kilometres across the desert. This time she's heading to Areyonga, an Indigenous community in Central Australia, to work with isolated and sometimes shy teenagers. She'll use a bit of bleach and a whole lot of colour in the hope of spreading confidence and pride. But in this makeshift salon Starlady also finds acceptance and friendship in what some might see as an unlikely place.
