Face detection is considered as a one of the most important issues in the identification and authentication systems which use biometric features. Face detection is not straightforward as long as it has lots of dissimilarity of image appearance. Some challenges are required to be resolved to improve the detection process. These challenges include environmental constraints, device specific constraints and the facial feature constraints. Here in our paper we present a modified method to enrich face detection by using combination of Haar cascade files using skin detection, eye detection and nose detection. Our proposed system has been evaluated using Wild database. The experimental results have shown that the proposed system can achieve accuracy of detection up to 96%. Also, here we compared the proposed system with the other face detection systems and the success rate of the proposed system is better than the considered systems.
