how do/did you discipline 18 mo. for hitting?

my dd is almost 18 months. she has 3 older siblings. she has just started hitting, but it's mostly just at dh & i when we're not letting her do something she wants to. honestly she has been given everything she wants/needs to this point, but now that she's endangering herself, she's told no. she doesn't want to hear that! my other children didn't act like this at all. i just tried putting her in a "break" on the bottom step for a little bit and told her why, but i have no idea if that'll work. what did you do? thanks mamas

eta: we've tried holding her hand and saying "we don't hit, it's not nice and it hurts. please don't hit". clearly, that hasn't worked.
