Red face short rows

What is your preferred method? Yarn over, wrap arounds, WW no-wraps? Advantages/Disadvantages to each? Fave tutorials? I'm a very novice knitter and have tried yo and wrap around short rows. I am thinking about trying the WW no-wrap method next. It just seems like no matter which way I do them, they're still noticeable until I adjust the stitches and even them out. Just wondering which was the preferred way to knit short rows by the experts. TIA!

Re: short rows

The ww no wrap works best for me. I can see my short rows, but dh has trouble seeing them. He often tries to put ds pants on backwards.
