getting rid of the underlines from links

I can't seem to get rid of the underlines from the links of my page.

      <header class="main-header">
        <h3 class="logo">website.com</h3>
          <ul class="main-nav">
            <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="portfolio.html">Portfolio</a></li>
            <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
    box-sizing: border-box;
    text-decoration: none;

    text-align: center;

    list-style: none;

    text-decoration: none;

.main-header, .main-nav{
    font-size: 1.2em;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding-top: 0;
    display: flex;
    flex-wrap: wrap;
    flex-direction: row;
    align-items: flex-start;

.main-nav ul li{
    flex-direction: row;

    margin: 0 auto;

I cant see any underlined element, I literally just copied your code in my workspace.

a{ text-decoration: none; }

This should do the trick.

Try using a psuedo-element:

a:link { text-decoration: none; }
