'Who is that?' Woman doesn't believe how fabulous she looks after Ambush Makeover

It was a cold December day, but that didn't stop TODAY fans from coming out to the Plaza.

Our Ambush Makeover team of TODAY Style Squad member Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari had a tough choice, but they found two deserving ladies who were ready for some birthday pampering.

Meet Pamella Yellin from Massachusetts, who is in New York City to celebrate the big 5-0. Yellin was excited to sit, back, relax and let our Ambush Makeover team work their magic.

"Oh wow!" said Yellin's boyfriend David as he saw her stunning new look.

For her makeover, Licari added some warmth to her hair with an auburn shade. Then, master stylist Argen Gurgov gave her one of the trendiest looks of the season: bangs!

To complete the look, Martin picked out a gorgeous, blue lace dress that Yellin can wear to all of her holiday festivities.

"Oh my god! Wow!" exclaimed Yellin when she saw how gorgeous she looked in the mirror. "Oh my god!"

Next up is Marie Kramer from California, who is in the Big Apple for a sibling reunion trip. And just like Yellin, she's celebrating a birthday. Her husband has no idea that she's getting a completely new look, but Kramer (who has only cut a few inches off of her hair in years) was ready for a big change.

Marie Kramer's husband is certainly going to be shocked when he sees her new look!

Kramer's siblings — Dolores, Barbara and John — couldn't stop oohing and ahhing after the big reveal.

Marie Kramer's siblings couldn't believe how gorgeous their sister looked!

Gurgov cut several inches off of Kramer's hair, giving her a chic, shoulder-grazing 'do. Meanwhile, Licari gave her a nice reddish hair color to warm up her skin for winter.

But her new look wasn't complete without a trendy, cold-shoulder top and black pants from Martin.

"Who is that?" asked Kramer as she saw her gorgeous self.

Cheers to both ladies! They look absolutely fabulous with their celebratory makeovers!
