This week, Ambush Makeover is back with two transformations that will knock your socks off!
Style expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari plucked two lucky ladies from the TODAY plaza for a morning filled with hair and makeup and fresh new looks.
From a lifelong, selfless teacher who is in New York City for the first time to a gym teacher with two kids who tends to throw her hair up in a ponytail, these two women are ready for a fresh new look.
Read on for everything you need to recreate the looks at home!
Visiting New York City on a girls trip with her family (the 'Golden Girls') for the first time ever, Donna has been a teacher all her life. Usually the type to take care of others, the 72-year-old from California is ready to be pampered.
Abstract Print Tunic, $89, Clara Sunwoo
Abstract Print Pants, $79, Clara Sunwoo
The exact pattern Jill picked for Donna isn't available online, but you can pick up this similar floral pattern instead. Perfect for spring, the matching shirt and pants make for a flattering look.
