When implementing Header Bidding, you would normally have two sets of tags to deploy: the header tag that goes into the <head> </head> section, and the body tags that should go within the <body> </body> targeted where the ad should show.
Using Advanced Ads plugin on WordPress, here’s a step by step guide on how to quickly deploy your tags:
