Back Focus, Bad Technique Or What?

I've switched from a D700 to a D800.

I've been having some focusing issues with it. And I need your advice.

Am I doing something wrong? Bad technique, wrong focusing settings, or is there an issue with the camera?

Here are some sample images from today:

I was shooting AF-C with single point.  I was putting the single point on their eyes as much as possible.

You can see from the samples that at times the hair is in focus and eyes are soft.  And one photo the focus is soft all the way around.

Please help!
