Watch 2 women get a stunning Ambush Makeover after losing 25 pounds each

"This is going to be the best moment of your whole life!"

The change from winter to spring provides the perfect opportunity to make changes in your own life. Whether that be a career move or a swap in your daily routine, the seasonal shift might be the motivation you need.

That's the case for our Ambush Makeover guests, Catherine and Deborah. They each recently lost 25 pounds and are thrilled to jump into the season with new looks.

Lifestyle expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylists Louis Licari and Chris Appleton helped these women feel their best with a brand-new makeover.

See their gorgeous transformations and stunning styles below!


Catherine and her daughter Lydia are currently on a girls' trip with their best friends. They headed to New York City for a brief escape from their hometown of Clinton, New York.

The mother-daughter duo visited the plaza for their final stop in the Big Apple, and they're celebrating the end of their trip with an Ambush Makeover! While her husband and her other daughter are tuning in from home, Lydia is so excited to be here to watch her mom have “the best morning of (her) life!”
