My 2 1/2 year old will not listen to anything I say, Any Advice?

It really is the typical 2 year old behavior. I have become so frustrated lately with not being able to have any control over how my 2 year old is behaving that I started looking for anything I could online for help. Its the simple things she will take no ear to. Such as I want to wash her hair and she just want to play. I tell her its time to wash her hair and she will continue playing with her dolls and say no! She makes a joke out of me trying to have her listen. I have tried punishment (time out/spankings), bribing (horrible idea), yelling (worse idea). Just hoping there is more advice out there that I have not heard and could try. Lots of sites say to just talk to them and explain why your doing this ... well at this point there is no words to communicate she will be screaming at the top of her lungs and throwing her arms screaming for whatever it is she wants. Any advice helps, Thank you :)

My son does the same things . This may sound mean but when he does that I take away either him watching his favorite shows which are educational or his toys sometimes his "treat" which is raisins. Until he gives up and sees that he doesn't get his way with everything
