Hey @sixdreamz 


You have reached the German community here but we can chat in English too, that's no problem!

To make the header background of your Shopify theme transparent, allowing the picture behind the logo to be visible, this is a limitation of the Sense Theme but you will find this feature in other themes. Have you considered testing other themes in your store too? We recommend to do that in order to find the best theme for your products, store, and brand identity. Perhaps the Sense theme is good, but not perfect for your branding.


If you are using specific Shopify themes like Prestige, there might be built-in options to enable a transparent header (see the amazing Prestige demo here). As you are going to sell fashion wear, the Prestige theme would be a best fit for your products, store, and brand identity.


In such cases, you can navigate to the theme editor, click on the "Header" section, and find the "Transparent header" settings. This method allows you to control how the header looks when it becomes transparent and is easier for those not comfortable with direct code editing.


If you want to program it yourself then always do it in a testing environment first and ideally together with an expert or liquid programmer. You can create a backup of your theme before editing the code, or restore the code if necessary. You could also hire one of our experts by sending them an email. Our experts usually respond very quickly. Changes to your theme code can also 1) negatively impact page loading speeds and 2) exclude your theme from theme updates. The following is theme-dependent, without guarantee and only serves to point you in the right direction!


A common method involves adding custom CSS to your CSS Editor within the theme editor like the following example:



header {
    background: transparent !important;



You can also customize the level of transparency by adjusting the background-color property in the CSS. For example, using rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5) achieves a semi-transparent effect. Also, choosing the right colors for your transparent header is crucial to align with your brand and create a visually appealing look.


Hope that helps and if you have any further questions, I can recommend an expert or you can post your question in our dedicated Design Forum here and a frontend developer will give more tips.
