Watch this couple get an Ambush Makeover just in time for Valentine's Day

Their new looks will be perfect for their 35th anniversary in May!

Typically, TODAY features two lucky women for an Ambush Makeover transformation — but we're doing things differently for Valentine’s Day!

In anticipation of the romantic holiday, lifestyle expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari chose to treat Mark and Roberta to a makeover as a couple.

The two knew they were meant to be together from a young age and are visiting the city before their 35th anniversary in May.

Since they rarely focus attention on their personal style, Mark and Roberta were thrilled to get a new look just in time for the holiday weekend.

See the new styles that had them grinning from ear to ear!


The day Roberta met Mark, she wrote in her diary that he was the guy she was going to marry. Now, nearly 35 years later, the couple has two sons: 16-year-old Yager and 13-year-old Yorgen.

Roberta and her husband Mark love being older parents because it allows them to fully dedicate their time to their family. Now it’s time for these parents to get a little pampering for themselves.

Roberta says she rarely puts on makeup and has never colored or blow-dried her hair. That all changed when she entered the studio!

Mark was the best friend of Roberta’s older brother when the couple initially met. Though they were introduced to each other at a fairly young age, they knew right away that they were just right for each other!

The pair is back in New York after setting a Guinness World Record in 1998 for the longest consecutive kiss at the time (they locked lips for 29 hours!). Though they loved the looks they had when they got married 35 years ago, they haven’t changed it up since.
