No, no, no! Room for sideheads is a flow property. But the column layout
is a frame property, and you can change column layout whenever you want
by inserting a new frame and connecting it to the preceding one (select
the preceding frame first, then the new one, and then select Format >
Customize Layout > Connect Text Frames). 

Your page can start 1-column, switch to 2-col in the middle, and then
return to 1-col. It's done all the time. 

HTH, and good luck with the deadline.
