Trying to remember back (you think you'll never forget, but oh boy!), yes, I believe that is quite normal for his age, boy or girl. At two they are still grabbing at everything and still developing their gross motor skills, and part of that is distinguishing what is too forceful of touch.

I would just take his hand when he's pulled some hair or smacky, smacked a face and give him a firm look and a firm "No". Then take his hand and have it brush gently down your hair (or other child/person's hair) and say "Yes, nice" all happy-like. Same with the smacky, smacks, run his hand over the face (his own even) and do the same thing. If he's still not getting the message and adjusting his grabs and smacks, then a firm tap on his hand while you say the "No". Unless you are of the ilk that do not believe in any physical punishment at all. He'll still slip once in a while as they are still working on their gross motor movements at that age, and well their emotions too. They often do these things out of over happiness just as much as out of frustration.

He sounds like he's going to be a big boy! I saw you mentioned though that Mr.kk is over six feet.
