Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) is the element that is read first by the web browser when loading a page. The browser will not render the page until all stylesheets have been downloaded and parsed.
How Putting the CSS in the document head works:
It is important to put the inline style blocks and references to external stylesheets in the head of the page. If they are in the body of a page they can significantly reduce the loading speed and even cause reflows that will further hit the performance of your website. You can use the
tag in the head of a document to reference external stylesheets and the
tag for inline stylesheets.
Putting CSS in the document head provides the following Advantages:
No content shifting during page load
No reflow caused by the CSS being in the body of the page
Increased loading page speed
