    When a woman lies down and her hair is on the side

    Hello to all,

    Imagine a woman is lying in the bed. Her long hair is folded to a side. I want to find a nice and delicate way to describe this situation and her hair.
    What can I say?

    Maybe these pictures will help:

    In both pictures the woman is lying in bed on her side. There is nothing more to say.

    I know but I want to describe it in a dramatic way. For example: She was lying on the bed with a river of her jet black hair flowing through....

    Perhaps you mean you want to describe it in an interesting way.

    Maybe others will have some suggestions.
