How do I show section and chapter in header and footer

I have documents with major sections each of which has a number of chapters. I would like to put the section name in the header and the chapter name in the footer.

My first thought was to make the sections a heading 1 style and the chapters a heading 2 style. But I can't put heading 2 into the footer

Making a new style for each section is not a viable option
