Ths simplest CSS that I can think of as a starter:

header h1 {
 color: white; 
}

What header? I pasted your code into Workspaces and everything shows up. Except for "Em Barber" at the top, which is still there, but the font color is the same as its background, so it's in stealth mode. Find the spot where you manipulated the font color of your h1 in the header.

thank you for that! so how do I change my header colour?

Thank you! it has worked!
