Dear Mr. Eisen:

In your letter dated March 8, 1995, on behalf of Avon Products, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item measures approximately 8 inches in length, is constructed of rigid plastic and features a two level vibration power switch on the handle. The brush portion is constructed of nylon tipped plastic bristles which vibrate and massage the scalp. The back of the hairbrush consists of circular rubber pads which vibrate and may be used to massage other areas of the body.

The submitted sample is being returned as requested.

The essential character of this article is imparted by the hairbrush.

The applicable subheading for the massaging hairbrush will be 9603.29.8010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Hairbrushes...Valued over 40 cents each. The rate of duty will be 0.3 cents each plus 3.6% ad valorem.
