Ears are the hardest to get right, imo-
in front of the ear, I pull the ear back (open and basically held against the back of the skull), and kinda lay the thinners against the back of the dog's cheek to get that hair growing @ front of the ear canal. Some of them don't have a lot, others have so much it takes as long to get that hair as it does the top of the ear. The ones that have a lot of hair I aim for a half moon shape of thinned hair here.
Then I do the edges, from just in front of the tip all the way to the back of the ear. I don't trim the front of the ear at all.
Then I bevel that edge toward the body of the ear.
Then I brush the hair back so it's standing straight out, and use the thinners to make that hair all the same length. And get behind the ear, pretty tight, down the neck.
