See 2 sisters get new winter looks during this amazing Ambush Makeover

Check out their dazzling new head-to-toe looks.

It’s hard to believe that in just one week, the month of January will come to an end. Maybe it’s the process of getting caught up after the holidays or maybe its the excitement of the new year — either way, it seems like 2020 is flying by.

Before February arrives, lifestyle expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari treated two special women to an Ambush Makeover.

Sandy and Gwen are sisters and best friends and have been to New York City on multiple occasions, but they never anticipated that this time around, they would get a full head-to-toe transformation from the TODAY team.
