Once you have your selection, the following code will change the format of the selection to header type x

    Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 1")

or
    Selection.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("Heading 2")

xDJR1875: pretty close. The actual code is

                Word.Style GetStyle(string stylename)
            {                  
                  foreach(Word.Style style in oDoc.Styles)
                  {
                        if (style.NameLocal == stylename)
                        {
                              return style;
                        }
                  }
                  return GetStyle("Normal");
            }
            public void SetStyle(string stylename)
            {                  
                  object newstyle = GetStyle(stylename);
                  oWordApplic.Selection.set_Style(ref newstyle);
            }
