How do I send a HEAD request using Curl?

To make a HEAD request with Curl, you need to use the -I or --head command-line parameter. The -I command-line parameter tells Curl to send an HTTP HEAD request to receive only HTTP headers. The HEAD request is very similar to a GET request, except that the server only returns HTTP headers without a response body. In this Curl HEAD request example, we send a HEAD request to the ReqBin echo URL. Click Run to execute the Curl HEAD request online and see the results.
