usually, the first page contains only a page number as its "headers". thus to turn off the page number on the first page, somewhere on that page issue the command \thispagestyle{empty}.

if this command is used on a non-first page, it will wipe out also any running heads that have been included. this can be useful for producing occasional entirely blank pages.
