Ohh sorry i though you were using polygons, my bad. Well unless you have good experiance with subds you probably shouldnt make a head as sub ds r very hard to use. For your very 1st head model I would advise you to use polygons (like me ) as I found it easy to get a hang of.
And sorry I can give you any advise on subd modeling as I suck with them.

If you're working with Sub-D's then you should just be able to right click and go to 'polygon'. Then you can work with is like it was any other polygon, split edges and all.

create a polygon sphere,
use the divisions you like... not too many (start simple),
with split polygontool you can cut the mouth, eyes, nose out and start tweeking some points...
..to see this in a more smoothed mode you can make it a subD
<modify/convert/polygon To subD...>
..tweek a bit more and go back to polygon mode
<modify/convert/subD To polygon...>
and so on...
This is the way I kinda model but I wouln't create the mouth, eyes, nose out of the sphere...
Everyone has it's own method..

Try searching for tutorials of how to create a head and you will see many methods of doing it...

hope I helped you a bit..
