Probably for some people, skip curling is pain and prolonged process, but the way I do it, in only takes about 10 minutes and is easy. In fact the way I do it sounds sort of like what you're describe making pin curls -- it's just that you don't end up pinning anything.
Basically, after I've applied whatever styling product I'm using on my wet hair (FSG these days), I take 1" - 2" sections of hair and twirl them around my finger like my finger's a roller to make a defined curl. Then I just release the curl and don't touch it until it's dry. All of that really only takes me about 10 minutes. When my hair's dry, I SOTC (and usually I separate the bigger curls into smaller ones). I don't know, I just like my curls better when I do my version of skip curling (otherwise my hair has stringy, randomly shaped curls).
Btw, I imagine everyone on nc.com developes their own version of a given styling technique to get the curls they
want. So if plopping, skip curling, or whatever else works for you,...Great!
