Most people tend to refer to fashion magazines when they visit a salon for a haircut, but the way people look after changing their hairstyle is often very different from what it looks like on a model. Students at the Chihlee Institute of Technology have designed and developed a smart face-shape analysis and hairstyle-matching system. This software can analyze the shape of a face and the proportions of its features and make suggestions for matching hairstyles, and its inventors have obtained a patent for it.

Lee Chi, a graduate from Chihlee Institute of Technology’s Department of Commerce Technology and Management, says that the program uses image-processing technology. When you enter a photograph into the system, it can automatically analyze the shape of a person’s face and the proportions of its features, match it with suitable hairstyles and simulate the finished style before it is done. It does facial positioning automatically and is easy to operate, making it suitable for use by beginners. Lee says that his team has signed a technology transfer agreement with the Showlin Salon group.

多數民眾到美容院剪頭髮,常參考時尚雜誌,但往往變髮後的造型,和模特兒落差很大。致理技術學院學生研發「智慧型臉型分析與髮型搭配系統」,軟體可自動分析臉型與五官比例,提供髮型搭配建議。這套軟體已取得發明專利。

致理技術學院商務科技管理系畢業生李祁表示,該軟體運用影像處理技術,輸入照片後可自動分析臉型與五官比例,搭配合適髮型,預先模擬完成後的造型,且自動進行人臉定位,操作簡易,適合入門者使用,已和小林髮廊簽訂技術移轉意願書。
