RE: The tariff classification of a ponytail holder from China

Dear Mr. Orzechowski:

In your letter received October 7, 1998 you requested a classification ruling.

You describe the ponytail holder as "a hair restraining device (scrunchie) made of elastic (rubber) band wrapped with synthetic (acrylic fiber) hair". In effect, this article has a rubber core with acrylic yarn gimped around it.

The applicable subheading for this article of gimped yarn and elastomeric strip will be 5609.00.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of yarn, strip or the like of heading 5404 or 5405, twine, cordage, rope or cables, not elsewhere specified or included; other. The duty rate will be 6.2 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Camille Ferraro at 212-466-5885.
