How to Change Header in Elementor

Table of Contents

The header of your website is the first thing your visitors notice. It is one of the most crucial aspects of your website’s design and plays a significant role in creating a first impression. To make sure your header stands out and matches your website’s theme and tone, you might want to change it. Luckily, Elementor, one of the most popular page builders for WordPress, makes it super easy to modify website headers. In this blog post, I’ll show you how to change the header in Elementor, step-by-step.

Step 1: Install the Plugin

Before we jump into the process, you need to install the Elementor plugin and activate it. You can do this from your WordPress dashboard by navigating to Plugins > Add New and searching for Elementor. Once the plugin is installed, activate it.

Step 2: Create a Header

Next, you need to create your header. To do this, go to Pages > Add New and select the ‘Elementor Canvas’ template. This template allows you to design a header without any of the standard WordPress elements like the header, footer, or sidebar.

Step 3: Choose Your Header Type

After you’ve created a new page using the Elementor Canvas template, choose your preferred header type. Elementor provides two header types – the theme header and the custom header. Choose the custom header option to proceed to the next step.

Step 4: Design Your Header

With the custom header type selected, you can start designing your header from scratch. Elementor offers a set of pre-designed header templates that you can select to get started. You can also customize these templates to suit your website’s look and feel.

Step 5: Save and Publish Your Header

Finally, once you’re done designing your header, save and publish it. Once published, navigate to the appearance > Customize section in your dashboard to fully integrate your header with the rest of your website.


In conclusion, changing the header in Elementor is a simple process that can make a big difference in your website’s appearance. With customization options available for both the design and functionality of your header, you can create a header that is unique to your website and enhances your visitors’ experience. By following these five simple steps, you can create a header that complements your website’s look and feel. So, go ahead and give it a try!
