The Head Rims do not show the side of the head. The side of the head is 
written without any Rim area, in one of two ways, with or without a 
contact star. If there is a contact star, then you are touching the 
side of the head. If you use a Surface Symbol, it means that the 
movement is relating to the side of the head, but is not contacting...

So if you see a contact star near a Facial Circle, and the Facial 
Circle does NOT have a RIM area marked, then the contact is being done 
to the side of the head...not the rim of the face...
