Hello. Yes, acupuncture is often very helpful for chronic headaches and migraines. There are many different causes of headaches but acupuncture is often helpful for most types. The typical treatment recommendation is once a week for 8 weeks and then we reduce treatment frequency to see if the patient can go 2 then 3 weeks between treatments. Some patients need regular maintenance treatments (for example, monthly) to keep symptoms at bay. I hope this is helpful!
Acupuncture can absolutely help with chronic headaches. I've had great success and clinical experience with migraine populations.

"Based on a recent systematic review of 22 clinical trials involving 4985 people, there is evidence that acupuncture reduces the frequency of headache in individuals with migraine, and that the effect may be similar to that observed with preventive medications. The frequency of headache is dropped by 50% or more in up to 59% of individuals receiving acupuncture and this effect can persist for more than 6 months." Quote from:

There are some headache causes that would need to be ruled out (e.g. cancer or other tumor/growth). Assuming you've already been down that road, yes, acupuncture can be an excellent treatment for chronic headache and/or migraine.
