It contains a hand-held, 1875-watt, hair dryer, a concentrator attachment, a 1.5-inch thermal brush, a 1.25-inch thermal brush, and a detangling comb. For classification purposes, in the opinion of this office, the styling set is a set whose essential character is imparted by the hair dryer.

The applicable subheading for the styling set will be 8516.31.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for electrothermic hairdressing or hand-drying apparatus, hair dryers. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.
