To get started, go into your admin dashboard, navigate to General Content > Menus > Headers.
Once you clicked on Headers, click on the + sign to Add a New Header
You have the option to build Custom Headers from scratch if you are confident enough, but there is always an alternative to build one out of the templates we have.
