Right. I dont know whether this information will help you guys but here goes. I've added a background colour to the body and this has now highlighted that my header does have a curved border. Therefore the only thing I cannot understand is why the colour i've designated for my header is not working.

Maybe it doesn’t undestand the “thin” keyword? Try it like this:
border: 1px solid red;
For further help you need to post your entire HTML and CSS, it’s not possible to give any real advice based on such a small snippet of code. Often an error is caused in a much different place than where it becomes obvious.
