The GentleManual is offering a beard styling guide for those who might feel a little lost in the midst of No Shave November.

According to Eric Bandholz, growing a beard is so much more than refusing to shave for thirty days. A beard, Bandholz contests, is an extension of self, much like any other style statement, such as the clothes you wear or the music you listen to. Whether it's Movember or not, your facial hair is a reflection of your persona, and requires your careful consideration.

The GentleManual tries out several iconic beard styles and explains what they might reveal about you. They include classics like the goatee and the full beard, along with unconventional choices such as the Chin Curtain or the aptly-named Van Dyke.
