    You should've asked her for her

    Hi,

    Is it "You should've asked her for her number for me" a well-constructed sentence?

    It's fine in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That's fine! Cross-posting is a regular occurrence.

    The only thing I would say about removing the first "her" is that it leaves open the possibility that the speaker thinks the listener should/could have asked someone else for "her" number (one of her friends, perhaps).
