We review lepton flavor physics and corresponding observables in the composite Higgs framework with partial compositeness, considering ‘UV complete’ setups as well as effective and holographic approaches. This includes anarchic flavor setups, scenarios with flavor symmetries, and minimal incarnations of the see-saw mechanism that naturally predict non-negligible lepton compositeness. We focus on lepton flavor violating processes, dipole moments, and on probes of lepton flavor universality, all providing stringent tests of partial compositeness. We discuss the expected size of effects in the different approaches to lepton flavor, which will be useful to understand how a composite lepton sector could look like, given up-to-date experimental constraints.
