What bead hole size do I need?

Rubinskaja hair beads generally come in four different sizes:
6 mm (small)
8 mm (pencil)
10 mm (marker)
12 mm (large)

How to measure your dread bead size:
1. Take a ruler or measuring tape
2. Hold your dread firmly against device
3. Read off your dread diameter
Your bead hole size should be the same or slightly smaller to prevent slipping.
Of course you can also wear two or more dreads in one bead.

If you want a different size, you are welcome to order custom made quality pieces especially for you.

What hair tie length do I need?

Rubinskaja bendable dread ties generally come in three different lengths: 20 | 30 | 50 cm
What length you need depends on how you want to use the hair tie and on the volume of your dreadlocks. For tying up thicker dreadlocks in a ponytail, for decorating a big hair bun or for double or triple wraps you will need 50 – 60 cm. For thinner dreadlocks, a half-up or single wraps 30 – 40 cm is enough. For decorating individual dreadlocks or holding a braid 18 – 20 cm might be the length of your choice.

If you want a different size, you are welcome to order custom made quality pieces especially for you.

Can I leave Rubinskaja dreadlock jewelry in while washing my hair?

No. Rubinskaja hair accessories are made out of delicate materials like silk, leather and embroidered textiles, which don’t take water very well. So in order to enjoy Rubinskaja jewelry for a long time, please protect your pieces from water.

I don’t have dreads, can I still wear Rubinskaja hair accessories?

Yes. Although Rubinskaja hair accessories are designed especially for dreadlocks, they also decorate your braids or regular long hair perfectly. Both beads and hair ties make beautiful jewelry as well. As focal beads on your necklace or as bracelets on your wrist.

Can I order custom made pieces or sets?

Yes. If you see something you really like in the shop, but need a different size or color, or if you are looking for dreadlock accessories for a very special occasion, you are welcome to order custom made quality pieces especially for you. There will be charged a small additional fee.

How long does it take to get a custom made piece?

Depending on how many pieces you order and on whether your desired material is in stock in the studio, production can take between 1-5 weeks.
