comment What can be done when a child cuts his or her hair?
-1: I like the idea that certain behaviors have natural consequences, but I don't like the tone of "stupid choices." I doubt she chose to give a bad hair cut. She probably wanted to recreate the special feeling of attention she gets at the hair salon. Or something like that. Anyway maybe the lesson is "sometimes experiments fail". Or "we need to practice things before we do the for real."

comment How to avoid corporal punishment?
Please consider your own behavioral control in addition to your child's behavioral control as part of the problem you are trying to solve. As you have described it in your question you are losing control when you hit your son. Maybe another question is in order. "How can I maintain my composure when my children are provoking me to anger?"

comment Toddler likes to hurt herself?
You can think of spinning in circles as a game where pleasure and pain (at least discomfort) are mixed up. But it seems clear that it is normal and healthy play found in children everywhere.

I believe this type of question is considered off topic [along the lines of which product should I buy], but I have an answer so I've answered below. Could we make this a Wiki to avoid banning the question?
