This term is not being used properly in all cases so let's lay down some circumstances in what is heady, and what is not.
Heady glass is a term used to describe that you have a piece that only Heady bud, or dank is going to be smoked out of. This is high end, artistic glass which is blown from a very talented artist. Some things to look for in heady glass are reversals, wig wags, millies, rettis, honey comb and worked sections. Heady glass is one of a kind glass.
Here are some examples of "Heady Glass".
Roo Slide. See the Wig Wags and Millies
Fro, see the reversals
There is a lot of nice glass that contains some of this work also, but not to as high of a degree. This glass should not be considered heady glass.
This chillum here is a nice little piece of mine with some good work on it. It's not a heady piece, but it is made well, has nice design to it, and I love the galaxy looking scheme going on in the marble of it. But this chillum is PRODO glass. You will see many of them around. It's not a one of a kind piece.
Also, most tubes should not be considered "Heady". Just because it's a RooR, Illadelph, SG, or Toro, it is not automatically heady. There are some very nice collabs on tubes done by artists that you could consider heady.
I'm sure everyone has seen Trikky's collection. His tubes with worked sections on them we could consider heady. Just take a look at his Headman Heady, or his JP Toro Dom Perc Tube.
Hope this helps you a little bit to define what is heady glass, and what is not so the term is not so loosely thrown around the city.
