You should be able to take apart the head, I don't think I've seen one where you cannot do so. If not, try a small needle nose or something else that you can use to pull or pop it out, but be careful not to damage the rubber. If still "stuck" just buy a new head or hose.
I would say you should be careful when inflating to keep the head on straight, and that's true. However I'll also tell you that many of us have done the same thing, including me this morning!
