Model overview

The face-parsing model is a semantic segmentation model fine-tuned from the nvidia/mit-b5 model using the CelebAMask-HQ dataset for face parsing. It can segment faces into 18 different parts, including skin, nose, eyes, eyebrows, ears, mouth, hair, hat, earring, necklace, neck, and clothing. This model can be useful for applications such as virtual makeup, face editing, and facial analysis.

Similar models include the segformer_b2_clothes model, which is fine-tuned for clothes segmentation, and the segformer-b0-finetuned-ade-512-512 model, which is a SegFormer model fine-tuned on the ADE20k dataset for general semantic segmentation.

Model inputs and outputs


  • Image: The model takes a single image as input, which can be in the form of a PIL.Image, torch.Tensor, or a URL pointing to an image.


  • Segmentation mask: The model outputs a segmentation mask, which is a tensor of shape (batch_size, num_labels, height, width), where num_labels is the number of semantic labels (18 in this case).


The face-parsing model can be used to segment faces into 18 different parts, including skin, nose, eyes, eyebrows, ears, mouth, hair, hat, earring, necklace, neck, and clothing. This can be useful for applications such as virtual makeup, face editing, and facial analysis. The model has been fine-tuned on the CelebAMask-HQ dataset, which contains high-quality face images, and can handle a wide range of face poses, expressions, and occlusions.

What can I use it for?

The face-parsing model can be used for a variety of applications, such as:

  • Virtual makeup: By segmenting the face into different parts, the model can be used to apply virtual makeup or other cosmetic effects to specific regions of the face.

  • Face editing: The segmentation masks can be used to selectively edit or manipulate different parts of the face, such as changing the hair color or adding accessories.

  • Facial analysis: The segmentation masks can be used to extract detailed information about the structure and appearance of the face, which can be useful for applications such as facial recognition, emotion analysis, or age estimation.

Things to try

One interesting thing to try with the face-parsing model is to use it in combination with other computer vision models for more advanced facial analysis or manipulation tasks. For example, you could use the segmentation masks to guide the application of facial landmarks or facial expression recognition, or to selectively apply style transfer or image synthesis techniques to different parts of the face.

Another interesting direction to explore would be to fine-tune the model on different datasets or tasks, such as parsing faces in different cultural or demographic contexts, or extending the model to segment additional facial features or attributes.
