I'd would start by getting yourself a multimeter. Checking the continuity of the bulbs will rule them out. I would check there is no blown fuses either.
Checking there is 12v available at each headlight would probably be the next thing to do. It may be worth checking the earth from the lights to the bodywork too.

As JGB said, It may be worth testing the relays too if there is no power to the headlights. Might just be a bad connection, especially if both bulbs have 'failed' at the same time.
