Hm….sounds like a difficult situation b/c you don’t want to offend your friend who you orignally asked to do your hair but then again, it is your day and you want your hair to be the way you want it.

Is there another hairstyle that you’d like that she can more easily do well? I know that’s not ideal but it might be preferrable to do your hair differently if it looks better than her trial run.

Another option would be to tell her you’ve decided to splurge on yourself on your special day and embrace the spa/salon experience. Maybe she can still trim your hair a couple weeks prior to the wedding but on the day of, you don’t want her to be worrying about your hair or getting up early. Be sure to emphasize how much you appreciate her help in figuring out your hair style for the big day! Good luck and I’m sure your hair will look great!

Ok. Rather than frame it as keeping your friends and your wedding whatnot separate, you need to think of something else for her to do that’s really really important to you (something that seems more important than doing your hair, and preferably something that you’d only trust her to handle). I don’t know exactly what this might be, but you need to make it seem like you want her to do your hair but you’re going to have to give it up so she can be in charge of this other thing.

Or, maybe you could change your mind about her doing your hair so that you and all of your friends could get your hair done together at the salon of your choice? It’s much more social, includes everyone, and it would be a lot of fun.

Either way, I agree that it’s a sticky situation, and I think your only way out is to either make it a group thing (getting your hair done together), or coming up with something even "better" for her to do.

Good luck!

Can you tell her that your Fiance or mother splurged and surprised you with a "spa day" for the morning of your wedding, which includes the hair and makeup?  🙂  Maybe call and say he/she just surpised you with this gift certificate, but you wanted to "check with her first" to make sure it was ok, since you’d already made the plans.  Of course she’s going to say it’s ok, so then you’re off the hook.
