I have been using the dlib library to detect faces and its working really well. I delved a bit deeper into it and found its based on the concept of active appearance model(AAM) and active shape model(ASM). I found no explanations to the algorithm. All that internet resources seems to have is a series of steps to be followed without any understanding. I would be grateful if some one could explain how does it work? A simple intuition, some links to necessary resources would really make it simple for people like me to understand it.

if you can get hold of the "MasteringOpencv" book, chapter 6 has a nice introduction + code

You will have to dive into research papers for that: Active Appearance Models, PAMI paper, and the ECCV'98 paper. I also suggest you have a look at 'Active Appearance Models' in Google Scholar, that could help to have more up-to-date reference and/or improvement of AAM.
