The style of a page determines where LaTeX places the components of that page, such as headers and footers, and the text body. This includes pages in the main part of the document but also includes special pages such as the title page of a book, a page from an index, or the first page of an article.
The package fancyhdr is very helpful for constructing page styles. See its documentation on CTAN.
