You can redefine the macro \chapterpagestyle, such as


Or use any page style you like. I strongly recommend not to use a headings style on chapter starting pages. While static entries are no problem, automatic running headings could be a problem. Furthermore, I don't like a header line on chapter starting pages above the chapter header.
