You didn't include any code, but I'd guess that for what you're working on, the browser default settings for h1, h2, and h3 are being used, so they don't need explicit rules in the CSS. The exact settings may vary a bit between browsers, but they typically are a mix of font-size, font-weight and/or text-align.

You can always create rules for them later if you want to change their appearance from the default.

The H1, H2 and H3 css properties are coming from your characters and paragraphs style, meaning if you update your styles, css properties will update too. Ashley explains how to create these in this video.


then, you can create and name all the styles you want (body, 1h to h6) and depending on the styles you applied, you will find the corresponding css.

these can be really helpful as you will save a lot of time not having to rewrite your css from scratch. you can copy/paste this and make the adjustments you want after. also, if you work in a team, it's a sure way to give all the styling (colours, styles, sizes) details to a developer.
