HEAD is for retrieving only the headers response when the client make a request to your server

a common server response is something like this:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 04 Mar 2014 18:26:30 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.22 (Win32) PHP/5.4.3
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.4.3
Cache-Control: no-cache
X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=100
Connection: Keep-Alive
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
<html>
	<head>
		....
	</head>
	<body>
		....
	</body>
</html>

using a HEAD type request just only get the headers, those data before the <HTML> code starts in this case

Thanks. I was wondering why "HEAD" started showing up in the artisan route command. Maybe it's always been there, I just never noticed it.
