Yes, I would like to see an example. I have tried using the CellFormatting event, but I cannot seem to get the column header cells in order to get the formatting from them to use on the cell that I want to look similar.

I agree there is no straight way to copy the styles of a header cell and apply them to a data cell of RadGridView. As the visual properties of the header and data rows are different, even copy of all visual settings of the header cell will not provide the same appearance to the data cell.
You can use the Visual Style Builder tool to customize the theme you use and style the RadGridView data cells. Considering your example for different style of the first cell in each row, you will still need to customize the appearance of the control in run time using formatting events.
