Star Wars: Chewbacca’s Hair Routine in The Force Awakens Is Actually Pretty Glam

Despite all his furry fury Chewbacca can still have bad hair days, and here’s how he managed to avoid them over at Allure.

I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing many top hairstylists in my years at Allure. I’ve learned all about their favorite products, tools, and how they get their clients’ hair red-carpet ready. But I can honestly say that I have never, ever had as much fun discussing hair as I did when I talked to Maria Cork, the supervisor of the hair department in creature effects on the new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. Her job? To be Chewbacca’s go-to hairstylist, as well as care for all the other hairy creatures on set. I spoke with her about Chewy’s hair routine—and the results were equal parts hilarious and glamorous. It turns out, our favorite Wookiee is a bit of a beauty snob. You might even use a few of the same products.
