Tammy Pfaff came to TODAY for her 44th birthday, and was picked for an Ambush Makeover, which she said was "the best birthday gift ever.'
The 44-year-old from Pennsylvania started the morning with shaggy, medium-blond waves, and emerged from her makeover with a sleek, darkened 'do that complements her skin tone.
"Oh my God!" she exclaimed when she saw herself in the mirror. "I think it's fantastic."
"That's a good look," said Kathie Lee approvingly.
"I think she's beautiful," agreed her boyfriend Jeremy.
Robin Wilson, from Ontario, Canada, squealed with delight when she was selected for her makeover.
The 53-year-old shed her brown bob for a short, blond crop. "Whooo!" she exclaimed when she saw her reflection.
"You look like a movie star, you look so glamorous," said Louis Licari.
Her husband agreed: "Can I take her home?"
