Get Stuff We Love
It was double the fun for our Ambush Makeover team who surprised twin sisters with head-to-toe new looks to kick off the Fourth of July weekend in style!
These sisters don't just look alike. They also have the same haircut, often wear the same clothes (without the other one knowing) and even have the same jobs. Talk about seeing double!
Both sisters are celebrating their birthdays, and there's no better celebration than a makeover!
First up, Candy LaPlante from Sebastian, Florida! LaPlante is a 52-year-old accountant who works from home. She's had the same hairstyle for over 30 years.
LaPlante has always dreamed of having a knockout new look, and today that became a reality.
For LaPlante, celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari wanted to keep her beautiful locks long. He lightened the color and added highlights for an elegant summer look.
Jill Martin, TODAY contributor and fashion expert, kept the summer theme with a gorgeous, floral dress from Maggy London.
"I love it," she told Kathie Lee and Hoda after seeing her makeover for the first time.
Next up: Pennie Mutschler, a 52-year-old from Houston, Texas who runs her own tax firm. She has two sons and one grandson.
Mutschler has never dyed her hair before and doesn't wear a lot of makeup.
For her stunning look, Licari softened her hair and said "the tip is, after 40, soft and natural." We love her new hairdo!
For her ensemble, Martin gave her a beautifully polished look with an elegant all black, off-the-shoulder top from Clara Sunwoo and jeans from Gloria Vanderbilt.
These twins surely will be the hottest thing at their next summer party!
