I have

\pagestyle{fancy}\lhead{Personal Statement} \rhead{2013}
\chead{{{\bf Name}}} \lfoot{} \rfoot{\bf \thepage} \cfoot{}

which gives me a header on each page. How can I start this header on page two? I would like to have my title (Personal Statement) on the front page without the header.

Which document class you are using? You may use \thispagestyle{empty} just after \begin{document}. – Harish Kumar Oct 29 '13 at 1:17

You can change the page style for one page by issuing \thispagestyle{empty}. If this is for first page (title or similar), issue the command right after the \begin{document}.
