If you love a good Ambush Makeover, Thursday was your day. It was a very dramatic double act, with sisters Doris Scowl and Cindy Steele plucked from the plaza for a pair of stunning re-dos that were so good, they may make you weepy.
Stylist Louis Licari took Doris and Cindy from frizzy to sizzly, knocking years off both of them with a little hair smoothing and coloring.
(TODAY contributor Jill Martin also took away the blanket Doris was wearing in the plaza, as those aren't especially figure-flattering.) Both ladies looked so good that they cried. Then their friends cried, and then everybody cried.
Jill called it a "love fest," and Hoda called for "a big round of applause," but it's possible that everybody had their hands full with all the hugging. Check out the video!
