That’s the case with best friends Marcy and Anastasia — the first Ambush Makeover guests to be featured during the first live audience show with Hoda & Jenna & Friends.
They didn’t expect to get a beauty and style transformation today but were thrilled for a morning of pampering with style expert Jill Martin, celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and Glamsquad artistic director and makeup artist Kelli Bartlett.
See the looks that had them glowing from head to toe!
When Marcy heard that TODAY wanted a pair of best friends for Ambush Makeover, she immediately called her long-time friend Anastasia. They met 36 years ago at Penn State University and have remained close since. While attending Penn State, Marcy and Anastasia were sorority sisters in Kappa Kappa Gamma.
Though hesitant about being a guest on the show, Marcy felt comfortable knowing her best friend would be by her side for her transformational Ambush Makeover.
