Hola qué tal!

"...Hola ¿cómo estás?..." is somewhat more formal than "...Hola qué tal?...The first one usually implies that a more thorough answer is actually expected, while in the later the expression "qué tal", although it poses a question, it customarily goes unanswered, or it is answered with something quite trivial, like..."bien...bien".... It all depends on the degree of formality required by your text....Good Luck!

Hola, ¿cómo estás?

The most normal, (and a little out dated) is Hola, ¿cómo estás? But there are many alternatives to "how are you?" such as: ¿qué tal?¿cómo andas? ¿cómo sigues? ¿cómo te va? And cousins such as ¿qué cuenta? ¿qué pasa? ¿qué hubo? ¿qué hay de nuevo? ¿qué húbole? ¿qué dices?
