The header selector in JQuery selects all the heading elements of the web page. A header element typically contains sectionís heading. It selects all the elements from h1 to h6 in the document. In short, the header selector contains at least one heading tag from h1 to h6. It is important to note that header selector doesnít represent a new section, but it introduces head of the section. Another important note is, we should not get confused with the <head> element. Both are different elements. The header selector gives some great added value in order to describe the head of the section.
