Description: "Many people are faced with the problem of having noticeably protruding ears which detract from the person's appearance. In some cases, only one ear may protrude and in other cases, both ears may protrude. At the present time, the only reliable method of flattening the ear to the head is to perform surgery… The present invention provides an individual ear clip which fits on the ear auricle and which is secured to the hair of the user for the flattening of a protruding ear auricle."
