TODAY's Ambush Makeover team of celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and “gorgeous goddess of glam” (as Kathie Lee Gifford called her) Jill Martin found two stunning women to give new looks to.

Leaf Shea

 Leaf Shea came to the plaza to see Maroon 5 and was surprised with an Ambush Makeover. TODAY

Leaf Shea, 47, from Martha's Vineyard came to the plaza to see Maroon 5 with her best friend, Peggy. They were both shocked when Licari and Martin chose Shea for a makeover. The only thing better than running into Adam Levine is an Ambush Makeover!

Peggy told Martin that Shea has three very active sons and never takes time for herself. Today, it was all about Shea, who walked down our red carpet after her makeover just like a model.

 You look great, Leaf! Nathan Congleton / TODAY

"I look 10 years younger!" Shea exclaimed after seeing herself in the mirror.

 She approves of the makeover! TODAY

The Ambush team cut several inches off of Shea's hair and also texturized it. Licari noted that he softened the color as well.

Martin slipped Shea in a Nue by Shani little black dress with sheer underlay from Soma Intimates.

Shea is ready to take New York City by storm!

Bernadette Kelly

 Bernadette Kelly's husband usually dyes her hair, but today the Ambush Makeover team took charge. TODAY

Bernadette Kelly made the quick trip to Manhattan from Long Island with her friends Tanya, Christine and Andrea for an Ambush Makeover.

Kelly's husband currently dyes her hair, and she told Martin that she just turned 50 and needs a change.

Little did Kelly know that Licari and Martin were about to give her the greatest change!

Kelly's friends could not stop squealing after seeing her new look!

 Bernadette Kelly's friends were already talking about borrowing her new clothes.

"I did not expect that!" Kelly said after checking out her Ambush Makeover.

"You look hot!" Hoda Kotb added.

Licari said the Ambush team kept Kelly's hair brown but added in highlights and cut a chic bob.

Martin dressed Kelly in a 1.State leather jacket and Clara Sunwoo tank top with NYDJ jeans.
