Hi Viacheslav,

1. Nous nous sommes brossé les cheveux

2.

a) It depends if it is one person ( you say vous to) you are talking to in which case it would be -

Vous vous êtes rasé ...

or

b) you are addressing several people 

Vous vous êtes rasés ...

As for an explanation of the first one, take a look at my answer to a similar question from Leah below -

Can I ask why there is no "s" after brossé if it is plural? I thought it should be Nous nous sommes brossés les cheveux.

Thank you in advance!
