In this video, Ridley is training for the film in between shooting scenes, which means that her hair is all set up to play Rey. As a result, she put a pillowcase over her hair, which is hilarious, but also intriguing. It's possible that she's keeping it secret just for the sake of keeping it secret, but it's hard to imagine she'd go to so much trouble if her hairstyle were exactly the same as The Force Awakens. Perhaps this means that her three-bun hairstyle has changed, or maybe she'll be wearing her hair down, as a report from Making Star Wars claimed a few months ago.
The same report also claimed that Luke and Rey will generally be getting new costumes. Rey's is reportedly somewhat similar to her look in The Force Awakens, except she isn't wearing her vest and is only wearing the offwhite tunic underneath, giving her appearance a "Luke Skywalker vibe." As for Luke himself, he's wearing a darker costume than what we saw in The Force Awakens, which generally resembles his getup from Return of the Jedi, complete with the black glove on his hand.
