The composite Higgs models provide a natural solution to the Standard Model gauge hierarchy problem. In such models, the Higgs boson is a composite particle instead of an elementary one; it is identified as the pseudo Nambu-Goldstone boson of some strong dynamical new physics at scale O(TeV). In this talk, I will first review the motivations of the composite Higgs models, and then discuss their main phenomenological features, i.e. the existence of new vector and fermion resonances. I will take the Minimal Composite Higgs model as an example, to describe the strategies we use to search for the resonances at the LHC. Both current (Run II) and future (3000/fb) experimental reaches will be shown.
