Do you like them? Have a favorite tutorial? Any tips or tricks?

I have wavy hair, and thought it might be fun to try it to ramp up the curls. I don't want to have super crazy tight curls though b/c my hair is a shorter cut (just below chin).

Also if you have them......SHOW ME PICTURES of you sporting pin curls! Thanks!
