Yes, you use DataGrid.HeaderStyle.  You can assign it a CssClass using MyDataGrid.HeaderStyle.CssClass, or you can set things separately, e.g. MyDataGrid.HeaderStyle.BorderWidth

MyDataGrid.HeaderStyle.CssClass does assign a CSS class to the TR in the header row.  If you need to be able to access the TD inside this then I suggest you use a css selector.  For example, if you have a css class called headerrow, you can assign this to the TR of the header line using:

MyDataGrid.HeaderStyle.CssClass = "headerrow";

Then in css you can just do

TR.headerrow {
  /* Styles to apply to the TR */
}

TR.headerrow TD {
  /* Styles to apply to the TD within the header TR */
}

If this is not what you want to do then I have misunderstood you.

by any chance do you know how to set only the outside border?

Grid.BorderStyle = System.Web.UI.WebControls.BorderStyle.Outset;  i'm trying something like that but doesn't work..

You don't have to use CSS, but it's easier as it removes some of the formatting from the code.  You can still use MyGrid.HeaderStyle.ForeColor etc.  I'm not sure if you can get at the TDs directly but I don't know if you need this.

Regarding the BorderStyle, that should work fine.  Be careful you aren't overriding it somewhere.  I couldn't get BorderStyle to make much difference, but BorderColor worked fine.

Well, if all else fails, this will put a border round the outside...

Grid.GridLines = GridLines.None;
Grid.Style.Add("border", "solid 1px black");
