Default Face Submerged During Hand Entry Phase on Backstroke?

I can kick and float on back with and without sculling water and my face barely gets wet. However, when I try to backstroke my face submerges during the hand entry phrase and floats back up. Is this normal? I've seen people do backstroke at the pool and their face remains out of the water the whole time. I recently read an article online titled "Semi-Submerged Backstroke Are you in over your head yet?" and the author states it is normal for the face to go underwater when doing the backstroke. Is this correct information?
