In brief: Avoid triggers

Migraines vary with different people and change as a patient gets older. Key is to determine what triggers your headaches and then avoid the trigger. For frequent migraines, daily medication for suppression can be taken.

In brief: Get checked out

A good start at finding potential headache triggers would be to maintain a diary.
Every time you have a headache write down what you were doing, the foods you ate that day, alcohol, smoking, caffeine, stress, how much sleep you had the night before, eye strain, etc. Try to find patterns in your headache so that you can learn what things to avoid. Get checked by your doctor.
