A head is a line or lines of text usually set in a larger typeface than body copy that introduce articles or sub-sections of articles and stories in books, newsletters, newspapers, magazines, Web pages, and other publications.

Head usually refers to the main headline or title of a story although there are several classes of heads: main heads, secondary heads, headers, running heads, continuation heads, subheads or subheadings differentiated within a publication by placement, usage, and font size or style.
