This deserving mother-daughter duo got a makeover that had their family stunned

We loved the fall-inspired looks — and so do they!

Every morning we welcome excited guests to the plaza from our beloved city of New York and from cities across the globe.

Thursday mornings are extra special because our dedicated guests have the opportunity to be featured inside the studio in a segment called Ambush Makeover.

Style expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari welcomed two fans — a mother-daughter pair from Rochester, Minnesota — to be our guests on today’s show.

Watch as Mary and Kelly experience an astonishing makeover including new hair-dos, fresh makeup and an outfit worth showing off.


Kelly traveled all the way from Rochester, Minnesota with her mother, sister and her nieces. She came to the city to experience a fun-filled girls trip and was thrilled to be picked as the next Ambush guest.
