TODAY | November 15, 2012
one and only, cheerios "today" on this thirsty thursday. two ladies get swept up with hair and make-up and a head-to-toe new look.
>> "today" contributor and stylist to the star louis licari, la la la la la , never gets old. " us weekly " contributor and author jill martin.
>> great crowd. we were looking for two scandalous makeovers.
>> here we go. lucinda , 47 years old from arizona. this married mother of six has had the same style for as long as she can remember. she has always been tempted to go for a shorter haircut but is scared to chop it herself. she is going to go short. let's listen to her story.
>> we had to bully your mother into this. you think that she is ready?
>> i think she is ready. she needs hair color and she's had the same look for a few years. so see what happens.
>> now that you're inside with us, how are you feeling? s you were shaking outside.
>> little nervous, but it will be okay. excited.
>> oh, my gosh.
>> you're in great hands.
>> kaitlin has her blind fold on. please keep it on till i give you the green light . here is lucinda before. let's see the new you. oh, i love it.
>> ready to take off your blind fold? take it off, honey.
>> oh, my gosh!
>> come here. come to me. now turn around and look right here.
>> oh, my gosh.
>> look how beautiful you are.
>> look right at this camera.
>> that's still a long-haired look.
>> lucinda wanted to hold on to her long hair but wanted style. vanessa shaped it around her face. notice her beautiful jaw line? the first layer starts at the jaw line to emphasize it. i softened her hair color to make it brighter, prettier.
>> can we talk to kaitlin?
>> it looks really good. i like the color and looks like a whole new person.
>> tell us about the outfit. looks great on her that blue.
>> and blue matching yours. she said no at first to this makeover. we did kind of bully her into this. once we got the outfit on, this is andrew marc and kendra scott.
>> are you happy you did this?
>> yes, yes.
>> join your daughter right over there.
>> our second lady is renee , 54 from alexandria, illinois. this woman is in town to see "s scandalous." she isn't used to wearing make-up but she was up for a day of broadway beauty.
>> all right. renee has the sign, but peg you want this for your dear friend. you're busting.
>> i am. i am so excited. she always looks the same. she is so pretty. i want her to look like a hotty or glamorous for whatever.
>> what do you think about that, a hotty, is that what you want to look like?
>> i just want to look different. i have had the same look for a long time. and i'm a grand match it would be nice to look.
>> louis licari will make you the hottest-looking grandma in the country.
>> that would be great.
>> renee is a wonderful lady. she is here with her dear friend peg. let's take one last look at renee and bring the new renee out all ready for broadway.
>> beautiful. you want to take it off? take a look.
>> oh, my god! you look wonderful.
>> turn around.
>> i don't recognize myself.
>> you look gorgeous.
>> i see a little red in that hair. i love it.
>> it's more like a chestnut brown. what i tried to do here, look at the before, it's heavy, too dark. the lighter color makes it softer. that makes her hair look twice as full with a great haircut. both ladies have this natural pink glossy sheer lipstick.
>> peg is busting.
>> i can't believe it. i wouldn't recognize her. you don't look like yourself.
>> she knows what you means. tell us about this beautiful dress.
>> the attire tonight is festive. we wanted to give her something festive and scandalous with a little lace. this is by maggie london.
