It may have been a snowy Thursday morning in New York City, but that didn't stop TODAY fans from coming to the plaza in hopes of landing an Ambush Makeover.

Celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and TODAY Style Squad member Jill Martin grabbed their snow boots and found these two ladies, who were absolutely thrilled to start the new year with a new look.

Donna Noren, a 59-year-old resident of Carrolltown, Pennsylvania, came to the plaza with her daughter, Dawn. She was eager to throw away her box of hair dye and get a new look.

Noren was extremely grateful for her makeover. "I can't believe it! I love it! I love it! I love it!" she exclaimed.

Dawn was blown away when she saw her mom's transformation — she could hardly contain her excitement!

Noren's daughter liked what she saw!

The Ambush team cut 6 inches off Noren's hair, which enhanced its texture. Licari also made her hair a bit darker, giving it a more natural look.

Martin dressed Noren in a black lace Nue by Shani dress, and accentuated her waist with a belt.
