Pronoms Personnels

It is not that I don't trust my French teacher but she gave us some homework and I am not sure I know which is the right construction when utilizing the correct pronouns and in which position within a sentence. The first one is this:

Elle a acheté un paquet de cigarettes pour son père.

For replacing " de cigarettes pour son père" with appropriate pronouns, could it be one or both that could be employed:

1. Elle a acheté pour lui.

or

2. Elle lui a achetè.


The second sentence drove me nuts because there are three verbs within this sentence thus I am not sure where to insert the pronoun:

Je me suis fait couper les cheveux.

1. Je me les suis fait couper, or

2. Je me suis les fait couper, or

3. Je me suis fait les couper?

Ce sujet est très difficile!

Thanks,

Hi Phyllis,  

I can point you towards the following Kwiziq lessons which you should find useful for completing your homework.

En with quantities = Of them (adverbial pronoun)

Your second query is in my opinion above your A2 level. You might find your answer in the Q&A from this lesson-

Reflexive + direct object (double pronouns)

Hope this helps!
