Glen Head is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) located within the Town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, in New York, United States. It is considered part of the greater Glen Cove area, which is anchored by the City of Glen Cove. The population was 4,697 at the 2010 census.

With the exception of the villages of Old Westbury and Mill Neck, the villages of Brookville, Old Brookville, Upper Brookville, Muttontown and Roslyn Harbor do not have post offices or zip codes of their own. Consequently, areas within these communities are served either partially or in whole by the Glen Head post office and therefore use this hamlet merely for mailing addresses, despite the physical address being within the limits of an incorporated village.
