    Sure whenever the data table is drawn add your event handler.

    Check "Reference", "Events" for the "draw" event and other suitable events.

    colum().nodes() could be useful to select the column that you want to change.
    https://datatables.net/reference/api/column().nodes()

    To select a table header you could assign a class in your <th> tag in your HTML and then take it from there:

    $( table.column(".yourColumn").header() ).click( ... change the color etc.
