As the name suggests, the head stands for the “header tag”. That means it contains all those elements which give the title to a webpage. It contains various other important elements of the webpage.
For instance, the head element could give the default font size, style and colour which applies to each and every element around the webpage, provided that the other element will not contain its own definition that will overlap the head element definition. Hence, making the head definition useless for that particular element.
