Yes, and I think it's reasonably well documented.
(1) Create a notebook that has styles the way you want them.
(2) Place a copy in the directory ~/Library/Mathematica/Defaults.
    (~ refers to your home directory. The defaults directory may be named e.g. 

    Defaults22 if you are using version 2.2, etc.)
(3) Open Mathematica and select the submenu Info/Preferences/File Locations. 

    Type under Defaults Notebook the filepath of the file you just placed in 

    the Defaults directory.
