A face detection method for the color image with complex background is presented, which is a mixed skin-color segmentation model in both YCbCr and HIS color space constructed; The mixed skin-color segmentation model can be used to segment of possible skin regions in the original image. After skin-color segmentation, the geometrical shape information of face and the maximum of the complexity of eyes in faces can be used to detect face's position accurately. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can effectively prevent the side effects on the image caused by light condition, reduce the undetected rate, increase the speed of the face detection. Compared with other methods, this method has a very good result.
