In this paper, we present a face detection algorithm which uses the features of color and Geometry of faces and hairs appeared in images. after candidate area detection using color features, background areas are removed by the deviation of luminance in each of candidate areas. And then, final face area is detected using feature of geometry between face and hair. Performance of the presented algorithm is evaluated by detection rate test. The test result showed high detection rate.
