Braid Hairstyle Recognition based on CNNs

Chao Sun, Won-Sook Lee

Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel braid hairstyle recognition system based on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). We first build a hairstyle patch dataset that is composed of braid hairstyle patches and non-braid hairstyle patches (straight hairstyle patches, curly hairstyle patches, and kinky hairstyle patches). Then we train our hairstyle recognition system via transfer learning on a pre-trained CNN model in order to extract the features of different hairstyles. Our hairstyle recognition CNN model achieves the accuracy of 92.7% on image patch dataset. Then the CNN model is used to perform braid hairstyle detection and recognition in full-hair images. The experiment results shows that the patch-level trained CNN model can successfully detect and recognize braid hairstyle in image-level.
