The TODAY Style Squad joined Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on Thursday to surprise two lucky ladies with glam Ambush Makeovers!

Louis Licari, joined by his pup, Isabella Licari, and Jill Martin scoured the plaza in the freezing cold to find two ladies who were absolutely thrilled to get new looks.

Anne Thomas

First up was Anne Thomas, a 50-year-old mother of three from Richmond, Virginia, who needed some help controlling her gray roots.

Luckily for her, Licari and Igor Musayev set her up with a new 'do that shortened up and softened the color of her hair.

"My husband's going to love it! It's so different! I look so good!" she exclaimed.

Thomas' friend could hardly contain her excitement!

"Oh, my God!"

Martin set up Thomas in the perfect New Year's dress from Nue by Shani. She paired the look with black tights and pumps, plus glitzy earrings!

Up next was 46-year-old Lori Marcum, who was inspired to lose weight so she could keep up with her new grandson. After losing 75 pounds, the Kentucky resident was thrilled to undergo a makeover that would accompany her new lifestyle.

Marcum exclaimed that her husband "is going to die" after seeing her new look!


Her daughter and three cousins couldn't contain their glee. They let out squeals of excitement and tears of joy.

Licari softened up Marcum's hairstyle with some highlights and Musayev gave her a fresh cut.

Martin set up Marcum with a sparkling Clara Sunwoo top and jacket, along with some open-toe Badgley Mischka heels.
