Finger Waves

Lately I've been trying to change my hairstyle
I really love vintage hairstyles and Dita Von Teese seems to have the perfect hair.
So I searched on how can I achieve this look and I found many ways to do it.
The original look is this:
and it's mainly done on wet hair , so many tutorials on youtube demonstrate how you can achieve this look on wet hair
Althought there is a method that you can have the same result on dry hair
This is how it was done on the 30's with the old curling irons 
The similar item that is used today is the 3barrel waver that creates amazingly great finger waves but it's hard to find it in Greece and I wouldn't like to buy it online because of the incompatibility in watts.
So the only way to create this look is with the ordinary curling iron and takes tooooo much time...
This is the result when I tried it οn Christmas
Althought it's a pretty decent result I ould prefer it a little bit more curly
like this
Anyway I don't know what else should I do with my hair  so if you have any suggestions I would be really glad to hear them :)
