Frequently Asked Question #316. What is a custom userhead? How do I get a custom userhead?

You can replace the standard userhead (), which is displayed next to your username, with one of the custom userheads from our collection in the LiveJournal Shop.

Any custom userhead is valid for a period of one year from the time of purchase, whether or not you have other custom userheads already on your account.

To buy a custom userhead for yourself:
  1. Go to the Custom Userheads section in the LiveJournal Shop.
  2. Select your desired userhead.
  3. Click Add to cart, select a payment method and click Check out.

The selected custom userhead will be automatically applied to your journal. You can always change it at the Edit Profile page.

To give a custom userhead to another user:
  1. Go to the Custom Userheads section in the LiveJournal Shop.
  2. Select the BUY AS A GIFT tab and enter the username of the recipient, then click Next →.
  3. Select a delivery date and the desired userhead, then click Add to cart. Select a payment method and click Check out.

Please note: Any custom userheads set as a gift will not be automatically applied to the recipient's journal. The recipient will need to go to the Edit Profile page and select the new userhead.

To suggest your own userhead design:

Every user has the opportunity to expand the number of userheads in the LiveJournal Shop. You can design your own userhead and post it in an an entry to the community lj_userheads. If the LiveJournal accepts the design, it will appear in the LiveJournal Shop and anyone will be able to buy it. As the designer of the userhead, you will receive it for free. The size and other design requirements for the new userheads can be found in profile of lj_userheads.
