Check to see if the battery terminals came lose during the process. If you hear nothing clicking when you try to start the car check the starter also, the starter might not have anything to do with the headlight change just really bad timing. Hope you get your car running.

It was something completely wayyyyyy off topic! some wires that were to an after market stereo/alarm system? had melted from touching the exhaust and the wires were loose. Started right up after messing around with it. Up and running though, thanks for your help man.

No problem, Alarm wires make cense it probably put the car into safe mode which then disabled the car from running. Glad to here you fixed it!
