Abstract. Robust face alignment is crucial for many face processing ap-
plications. As face detection only gives a rough estimation of face region,
one important problem is how to align facial shapes starting from this
rough estimation, especially on face images with expression and pose
changes. We propose a novel method of face alignment by building a
hierarchical classifier network, connecting face detection and face align-
ment into a smooth coarse-to-fine procedure. Classifiers are trained to
recognize feature textures in different scales from entire face to local
