Ok, sorry disregard that,

you need to set ownerDraw for your listview to true, and subscribe to the DrawColumnHeader event

            this.listView1.OwnerDraw = true;
            this.listView1.DrawColumnHeader += new DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventHandler(listView1_DrawColumnHeader);

and define the event

        void listView1_DrawColumnHeader(object sender, DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventArgs e)
            using (StringFormat sf = new StringFormat())
                // Draw the header text.
                using (Font headerFont = new Font("Helvetica", 8, FontStyle.Bold))
                    e.Graphics.DrawString(e.Header.Text, headerFont,
                        Brushes.Black, e.Bounds, sf);
