I had a hair cut today.

Je me faisis couper les cheveux.

I hope the above is fine.

I am not sure about my French sentence. Please correct it.

I must have a haircut.

Je dois faire couper les cheveux. Is this fine?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your hair is cut by some other person. Why should it be a reflexive verb?

You fell down and injured; then you use the reflexive form. It is clear to me because you did it by yourself.

Je me suis blessé les coude.

I hurt/Inured my elbow
