The Header appears at the top of each page so customers can navigate your store with ease. Choose from multiple styles and layouts, add Mega navigation menus for large catalogs, enable a transparent header, and more.

Set up the Utility bar above the Header to display social icons, announcements, and language and currency selectors.

Set up main menu

By default, the header menu is set to the Main menu found in your Shopify Admin. If you created a separate menu, go to the theme editor (Customize) to change the selected menu for your Header.


In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Under the Main menu section, click Change and Change menu.

    The main menu works best for catalog and product links.

  2. Select a Secondary menu to display at the top of the header.

    The secondary menu works best for links to pages about your store, policies, contact information, and other additional information.

  3. Choose the menu you want to use and click Select.

Customer account login

The customer account icon appears by default when customer accounts are enabled in your Shopify admin. Go to your admin Settings > Customer accounts to find the Show login link in the header of online store and at checkout option.

Shopify Customer accounts is a Shopify feature. Our theme support cannot provide code customizations to remove the customer icon. See Shopify's Customer accounts ↗ manual to learn more.
