When I first cut my hair into a bob, I was afraid to do anything but straighten it. But, after conquering my fear of burning my scalp/ears with a curling iron, I learned the way to curl short hair.

    A small barrel curling iron, like mine, is much easier to curl short hair with because the shorter the hair, the harder it is to wrap around a barrel.

    When your iron is heated, take 1 to 1 1/2 inch sections of hair, and with the clamp, wrap your hair around the barrel, starting at the end of your hair. I usually leave it in for 15-30 seconds. The longer you leave it in, the tighter the curl.
