Provided that your underlying board is still in good condition, you should get away with just placing new fabric on it. If the fabric is still good enough, i used 3M spray glue on it. My mistake was that i tried to glue it back in place when it was too cold outside - result: the headliner came loose again. Room temp is recommended.

You can also check with your local upholstery shop. What I do is remove the headliner and drop it off, they recover it and I pick it back up, then re-install it. The bulk of their labor is getting the liner out and back in.
Since this is a common problem on all cars most shops have material on hand you can choose from, so just pick one about the same color.
Yeah I'd suggest an upholstery shop also. Doing it yourself is a pain in the ass. A word of advice if you do DIY though, make sure your material isn't too thin, as the adhesive you use could soak right through.
