Our anchors were feeling the chill this morning on the plaza and by looking at the forecast, it seems like the cooler weather is here to stay.

Also here to stay is our weekly Ambush Makeover where TODAY style expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari select two special guests from the plaza for a complete style transformation.

This morning, Katie from Idaho and Tammy from Tennessee stepped into the studio to experience the thrill of the makeover, accompanied by eager family and friends.

Take a look at Martin's stylish finds that gave these deserving ladies a brand new look.

Katie Schuler

This mom of two traveled from Knoxville, Tennessee, to show her kids the excitement of the big city. Her husband, Travis, was her high school sweetheart and she loves nature, hiking and the outdoors.

She adores motherhood but rarely spends time focusing on herself due to games, practices and trying to help her family in any way possible.

When Schuler walked through the doors of the hair and makeup room, she wanted to change up her curly hair that she's been growing out for years. Martin and Licari were thrilled to give her an entirely new look!

Tammy Morris

In town with her three best friends, Morris was hoping to end up inside the TODAY studio for an Ambush Makeover. One of her friends was treated with an Ambush look of her own five years ago and Morris has been wanting one ever since.

Luckily, she caught Martin's attention with a beautiful sign that she was up making until 12:30am. According to Morris, she wants to be "a cool grandma," and we're certain that her new look will make her feel wonderful.
