For example, if you use fancyhdr, you could write


in your preamble. Then, all first pages of chapters, which would have plain style, would show fancy style. Or use \fancypagestyle{plain}{}, see the fancyhdr manual for this.

Or use \let\ps@plain\ps@headings instead, or generally use your page style name after \ps@. \ps@plain stands for plain page style and can be reassigned this way.

or use the memoir class and alias its chapter pagestyle to something more suitable. – daleif Apr 6 '11 at 21:05
... or use one of the KOMA-Script classes and redefine \chapterpagestyle. – Gonzalo Medina Apr 7 '11 at 1:18
