The approach is the same for unix, mac, windows.

The actual path depends on your individual setup. If I remember correctly,
kpsewhich can tell you where it searches for the user's personal style
files. On my very old system 
	kpsewhich -show-path=tex
gives a very long path which includes (near the end) several optional names
for such directory trees.
	kpsewhich --help
might lead you to even better ways to query this.
