You may just be seeing the effect of his head moving as she slaps him, or the camera view being at a different angle.
Here is the hair from when he is in the office, just before they walk to the elevator:
And a couple of shots of him walking down the hall:
She hits him:
And he walks away:
So it could be just an effect of his head moving from the impact of the hit. The hair looks relatively flat in the first scene and thereafter until the slap scene because someone's hair would naturally move with their head if they were slapped.

I watched the pilot again - sigh - and I paid attention to David's hair in this scene. The difference is that his hair is longer in the back than in any other scene in the episode - more like his hair in Gunfight. I would venture to guess that the slap scene was shot/re-shot after the pilot was completed, closer to the filming of Gunfight. Just a thought...

Yeah, lin, I think you just might be right about David's hair and why it's different. I haven't watched the pilot in a while (and now I must, watch it, you know, for "research purposes" ) but I also remember Maddie's hair being a little different too. In the "slap" scene verses when they were in the office, I thought her hair looked more like later Maddie hair. This is all from memory, so I will have to watch it again soon, my curiosity is piqued
Honey, this "research" really is a lot of hard work, isn't it?
Even though the pilot and the first regular episode were shown only days apart, somehow I remember reading somewhere that the pilot was filmed earlier - maybe even at the end of 1984. Could be wrong, but it would explain the difference in David's hair in the pilot vs. the Season 1 episodes.
It's odd that David's hair in that one scene has the "season 1" look, but throughout the entire rest of the pilot looks more like "season 2" (which raises even more questions). Will this mystery ever be solved, or will it forever be filed alongside the Anselmo case?
