RE: The tariff classification of a hairstyling kit from China

Dear Ms. Ritchings:

In your letter dated August 28, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The extensions come in spirals, twists, dreads, and braids, and in assorted colors, as well as natural hair shades. Each extension has a tress clip at the top that is pressed near the top of the natural hair root with the styling iron to fasten it in place.

The applicable subheading for the hair styling kit will be 8516.32.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for electrothermic hairdressing or hand-drying apparatus, other hairdressing apparatus, other. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.
