No, you include the header in the resource requested. Assuming this is for  
a simple cross-origin request.  
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/access-control/#resource-requests has details  
for server implementors.  
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/access-control/#introduction has some examples  
in the end.
