Well, it's entirely possible that the producers tried out various costume and hair options before settling on one; that's pretty routine in any design process, to test out alternatives before settling on the best. There are photos out there of some alternative looks for Deanna Troi at the start of TNG, and we know they tried various makeup options for Data before settling on the one we got. So since they gave T'Pol a new look at the start of season 3, it seems likely that they would've done camera tests of different hairstyles and costume options and then settled on one. Maybe some reporter just caught a glimpse of one of those camera tests.
