Face detection looking down

Does anybody have an idea of how detect faces when the person is looking down? I already tested a lot of haar cascades but they only work when the person is looking straight to the camera.

Any tip will be very helpful, Thanks

The new improved LBP cascade is already a bit more robust than the original cascades, but it still fails in some cases. If you really want a robust face detector in multiple circumstances, you will need something better than cascades, like a deep learning network. YOLO is both performant and acessible through C code.

I think you might have to create your own haar cascade classifier given the ones packaged with OpenCV are more frontal or profile and are not working for you.
