It was a steamy summer morning on the plaza Thrusday, but our Ambush Makeover team — celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and TODAY contributor Jill Martin — were fresh as daisies in spring, and ready to add some pizzazz to two lucky ladies' styles.
For Missy Morton, 48, it had been way too long since she enjoyed some pampering. The FedEx employee, mom and grandmother hasn't worn a dress in four years, nor taken a trip to the salon in eight. Her makeup routine consisted solely of moisturizer and mascara. It was time to add some glam to this mom's look!
Missy's big reveal was an OMG moment! Her mother, Carolyn, was beyond speechless; she got teary as she saw her daughter. As for Missy, she couldn't believe she was in a dress after so many years!
"She looks really beautiful!" said Missy's excited daughter, Maddy.
Speaking of excitement, a family trip to New York City got a lot more exciting for Susan Schaefer, 48, Thursday morning. Susan works for the Minnesota public school system and is a mom of two. While she gets her hair done about every four months, its been 10 years since she's colored her hair. Today Susan was ready add some sunshine to her look!
Susan's reveal certainly brought the wow factor with her family.
"Woah!" said Susan as she saw herself for the first time. She was so excited that she threw in a little fist pump and peace sign action.
These two glamorous moms are ready to enjoy the rest of their vacation feeling and looking fabulous!
