1) All reflexive verbs use être in the passé compossé.

Il s'est levé et ensuite il s'est habillé.

2) In most cases, the past participle agrees with the reflexive pronoun (and the subject) in gender and number.

Je me suis lavé(e)Tu t'es lavé(e)Il/elle/on s'est lavé(e)(s)

Se Laver

Nous nous sommes lavé(e)sVous vous êtes lavé(e)(s)Ils/Elles se sont lavé(e)s

Julia s'est levée en premier et ensuite, Théo s'est levé. Nous nous sommes levés après.

3) The past participle only agrees with the reflexive pronoun when it is the direct object of the verb. Sometimes, you can tell it is not the direct object if there is another direct object in the sentence

Iris s'est lavée. 

BUT

Iris s'est lavé les cheveux.
