Grooming the Ears

Ok...I am nervous to take to much off of Bindi's ears but now I have been left with this hair that sticks straight out at the top of the ear off of the skull. Do I thin more or take off more length? I know it's difficult to say but wondering if any of you have experienced this and next step advise. I have always been told that the ear hair grows so slow and am scared to death to make a mistake and cut her ears way to short in length.

Any help?

Let it grow in. Don't cut it!

I never trim the part of the ear nearest the face except at the very bottom where I round it with thinking sheers close to the skin. If I do trim on that part it is in downward motion and very, very lightly. Grandma Jenn says it gives them a softer look and to not cut that part so I don't!

Ps. Good job, lookin' good!

so do I leave it kind of fly away looking then? I always thought it was to be a smooth look at the top of the ear and then thin the edges and the fluffy hair behind the ear?

Chester's sort of look like that but his are more wavy. I would say just leave them in my opinion they look pretty well groomed already

I leave that alone as well. It needs to be long enough to blend into the ear.

I don't believe that should be trimmed. Lucy's ear hair is way more out of control than that. lol
