It’s totally your call, but since she is your friend I think you could easily have several practice sessions that would make both of you more comfortable. I would consider it unless you truly doubt her skills.

The morning of your wedding will be hectic for you AND your Maid/Matron of Honor.  Why don’t you ask her to do your hair for the rehearsal dinner or for something else, but suggest that you and all of your maids go get your hair done together.  She’ll have other important duties, she doesn’t need to worry about your hair.  And you’ll have someone built in to help with any touchups throughout the day.

as nice as her office is, my concern is that on the day she will be busy enough as it is to not have time to devote to you like you need

maybe tell her you want her to enjoy the day with you as a friend and guest and not as hired help. if she really insists, maybe she can do your hair for the rehearsal dinner instead

I agree with Erin.  Have her do your hair for a different event.  Tell her that you’d rather she relax and not have to be too stressed.

i like Erin’s idea of having your Maid/Matron of Honor do your hair for another event. if your moh is nearby, maybe you can do some trials together first so you get a sense of whether you’d be comfortable with her doing it the day of.

will there be something you’d rather she help you before the wedding (e.g. confirm set up, etc) instead? that might be a way to propose it to her – that she would be a much bigger help to you doing x, because she’s the only person you would trust to do that.

I think Erin had a great idea to suggest to have your Maid/Matron of Honor do your hair for another event-Rehearsal dinner, shower, etc.  Focus on how you’re going to need her help/support on the day of the wedding.  Tell her that you’ll want to just relax and spend time with her, instead of making her work on the day of the wedding.
