What face elements are detectable?

Can anybody tell me what face elements can be detected with OpenCV? I see a lot of people talking about the standard elements like: nose, mouth, eyes and face. But I want to detect a few other things like: brows, kin, lips, hair, etc.

Has someone done this before? And perhaps there's a module I can just purchase instead of developing this whole thing myself?

Thank you! Dennis

Have a look in your OpenCV directory under 'data'. You will find the subdirectories 'haarcascades', 'hogcascades' and 'lbpcascades' containing trained cascades for different bodyparts/objects.

If you're looking for something else, you have to train it yourself, which demands a little deeper understanding of the detection algorithm in order to get a good detector.

What is the final verdict on this? Can we detect hair using open CV?

I'm actually not a developer myself and just want to know if it's even possible.
