The purpose of this paper is to present short reviews the face detection techniques and to study the effect of Multifractal analysis in detecting facial features. In reviewing the existing techniques, we have compared the performance of Nilsson et al's algorithm, Haar Training implemented within Open Source Computer Vision Library (OpenCV) and Keinzle's algorithm in face detection. Then, we have produced some experimental results suggesting that the Multifractal approach would help to extract
