Before we get too excited for the night of the 31st, we're making room to celebrate another Ambush Makeover with style expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari.
This morning, Donna and Lori were picked from the plaza to join the style duo in the studio and both ladies were stunned that they were selected. Both of them have short hair so Licari was head-over-heels to show everyone how to style a short look for the fall season.
Check out the looks that had these lucky women overwhelmed with emotion.
This deserving grandmother arrived at the TODAY plaza this morning accompanied by her three kids and three grandkids.
