Help me keep the heading the same size

I am making a web page to practice and i have a picture logo at the top and a nav bar below it spreading across the screen. Some pages don't have any content on them yet except the header, logo and nav, but others have photos and paragraphs beneath the header. when i change pages to the ones with content the size of the logo and nav changes. how do i keep the header constant. sizes are set in pecentages.

Can you provide code? It would be much easier to assist if you can show us the code. Sometimes the order you place your CSS rules in can have unexpected results. The same goes for nesting HTML code. Also Have you used Chrome Dev Tools to help you identify what area of your code is affecting it?
