This paper presents a new face detection approach which is capable of detecting human faces from complex backgrounds. A new skin color modeling process is applied to the face segmentation process. Image enhancement is then used to improve the features of face candidates before feeding to the face object classifier which is based on a modified Hausdorff distance. The overall performance of the face detection system is evaluated and achieved a success rate of 87.5 %.
