With so many free and commercial themes out there, it can be pretty tough figuring out which ones are good, and more importantly, which one is right for you specifically. Headway is great in that it is easy enough for any casual user to competently create and then manage their own professional WordPress website.
Combine that with their dedication to providing amazing support, and this may be the last theme you’ll ever buy.
I recommend and work exclusively with Headway because it allows me to skip past all the tedious, repetitive work that goes into making a site and jump straight into design and strategy.
It gives me the foundation and flexibility I need to do what I love to do without worrying about the rest.
I am a lifelong graphic designer who had avoided WordPress for many years because the tools that I needed to be able to create original designs (that is, tools allowing me to work as a designer and not a technician) simply did not exist—until Headway. Headway has a beautiful and intuitive interface that often feels like I’m simply working in a sophisticated yet familiar page layout application.
But Headway wasn’t created just for people like me–my coding friends love Headway as much as I do, and find themselves bringing more refinement to their design, as well as developing sites with greater speed. And needless to say that this is the premium DIY solution for anybody looking to take control of their own online presence. Headway is truly for everyone!
Headway has completely changed the way I think about web design. Before Headway, I created several static concepts and then worked with a developer for interpretation. I’m a designer with development skills so I found it frustrating to lose control at that point in the process. Using Headway allows me to continue to design right through the development phase, tweaking fonts, designing and placing elements. Not only am I less frustrated, my clients love the fluid process.
Headway allows me to create beautiful websites based on my design and the function my clients need for success. No more trying to retrofit an existing, but imperfect template or producing cookie-cutter websites. With Headway, the sky is the limit!

I’m always looking for ways to save time when it comes to building and designing web sites, and Headway has been a godsend. I’m a hardcore programmer, but I’d much rather use a drag and drop interface and keep the coding for the heavy lifting.
Headway is the theme I recommend to all my clients and customers, because it’s so easy to update and maintain yourself. You can also really design a site based on your vision for it, unlike a lot of other themes that give you just a handful of cookie cutter options. I’ve been a Headway fan and user for a few years now, and I have to say that the support community is an excellent place to get advice as you’re building your next Headway site.
I’ve been a Headway user since the first version shipped. It is constantly improving — constantly pushing the boundaries. Headway has mastered that delicate balance, between being easy to use yet extremely powerful.
As a marketing professional, I know it’s important for your blog design or website design to stand out. Unlike some themes, which have limited customization options and always look familiar, Headway gives you the opportunity to express your individuality. Let’s face it: It’s hard enough to get noticed online, without working behind a cookie-cutter design!
If you want an original looking site, which showcases your individuality, the best way… is Headway.
With Headway, you don’t have to compromise on the design you want for your WordPress website – you can build almost any design you can conceive of.
While there’s a bit of a learning curve – as there is with any custom theme or framework – the power of Headway truly comes into its own when you realise how easy it is to customise every single part of your site, usually with no more than the click of a mouse. It is the only theme we use for our own network of sites – and the only one we recommend to clients and students who want ultimate control of the way their WordPress website looks.
Headway is the only theme I use and recommend to my clients for so many reasons; it puts you in control of the design of your site, the visual editor rocks, and the support is simply amazing. The fact that anyone can build their own site using Headway is a huge plus when comes to saving my clients money (and time!)
I love Headway 2 but Headway 3 takes customisation to the next level with endless possibilities!
Headway Themes is like learning to cook. The thrill of poaching your first egg, the contentment of the perfect coq au vin after weeks of dedication to the art of the stove.
Boot up Headway for WordPress and you’re instantly launched into a world of blocks that make building your site effortless. As you grow, so it evolves with you. Soon you’re using the Live CSS Editor for granular, ninja-like control of every aspect of your site.
But despite all that it was the support and community that sealed the deal for me. My customers need to know they have answers round-the-clock at their fingertips. Headway Themes has everything the modern business owner needs.
Headway 3 has been a Godsend to me and my site. It enabled me to develop a new theme for Plagiarism Today and have it up and running within six hours. It’s simple enough to pick up quickly but detailed enough to get exactly the look and feel you want.
It’s also been able to survive several traffic spikes, including a recent hit from Reddit, with flying colors.
I like to write but I don’t like to code, and I don’t have the time to learn. Headway made it super easy for me to design my blog exactly how I imagined it, without having to code a single thing. The time it’s saved me is worth it alone. The amazing support team and community it brings with it is icing on the cake. For the non-technical yet serious blogger, Headway is the perfect solution.
It’s always great to see software developers thinking about security end-to-end when building a product. Headway Theme has done a wonderful job of using security best practices to minimize security issues in their product. This has enabled them to offer a great theme framework with a stronger security posture. If we had more premium product providers doing the same, we’d have an overall safer internet.
Headway… is remarkable. It’s the only WordPress theme that truly lets you design your own website, the way you want it to look and behave. Zero coding required!
“All that WYSIWYG drag & drop goodness comes at the cost of poor performance, right?” Nope, it really doesn’t. Headway is one of the fastest frameworks available.
Pretty much everyone I’ve introduced to Headway come back to me afterwards, raving about how cool it is, how much time it’s saving them, and how Headway has made their lives so much easier.
I started using Headway about a year ago, when I was looking for a way to create mobile compatible sites for clients, without having to deal with all the coding. I immediately fell in love with the ease of using Headway, and how easy it made creating custom, mobile compatible sites. I then started requiring all the designers on my team to also use Headway, and they love it as well. Aside from the ease of design, my favorite thing about Headway is the amazing support they have. Their support team is always responsive and persistent in figuring out issues with a website. I highly recommend designers who want to be able to design more websites and spend less time (to no time) in the code, to utilize Headway.
Headway is the only WordPress theme that allows me to create any site that I, or my clients want. The flexibility is breathtaking and the ability to extend it with plugins and skins through Headway Extend makes it my default theme for those not wanting a cookie-cutter website. Constant innovation and improvement of Headway makes it my go-to theme.
