This is taken directly from the 2/17 community q&a segment:
Niklaswb: When will you make it possible for force-using characters to pull up/down their hoods on their robes?
Damion schubert: This is in the works now. It won't be in game update 1.2, but should get done in the next major update after that. And yes, we will extend this functionality to your force-slinging companions as well.
Our prayers are answered. Its coming!
