Men have been tucking their hair behind their ears for decades if not centuries. You’ve likely done the ear tuck without even noticing it. The naturalness and simplicity of this idea have served as the basis for many hairstyles over the years, and these are some of our favourites.
Shoulder-length hair is as popular as ever before. It’s a breeze to simply tuck the sides behind the ears, as Brad Pitt did here. This style emphasizes the face and keeps the hair out of the way.
This swept back style with a tuck is a timeless look that works well for formal situations like work and school. For best results, use a water-based matte finish pomade to slick the hair back. (This will also give your hair the right texture.)
If you love styles with lots of texture, this haircut is for you. The front of the hair is finger combed to create long wavy strands, which are then tucked behind the ear. If you like, you can use a bit of hairspray to keep the strands in place.
This 90s-inspired style emphasizes the ear tuck more than any other haircut on this list. The hair is shaped around the ear, creating a satisfying crescent shape. The result is a fun, relaxed cut.
This is another simple layered look that you can’t go wrong with. What sets this haircut apart is the fade that stops at the back of the ear, where it transitions sharply into the longer section. This provides neatness while still allowing for an ear tuck.
