It was a gorgeous August morning on the plaza Thursday! Our Ambush Makeover team of TODAY contributor and fashionista Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari were ready to add some summer sizzle to two deserving women.

For Brenda DeSantis, 58, a makeover was a dream come true. The mom of three, who works in a doctor's office, stops work just to watch Ambush Makeover every Thursday.

Holding a cardboard sign on the plaza that read, "PICK ME FOR AMBUSH MAKEOVER PLEASE," it was hard for our team not to notice her.

"Oh my God! I love it!" She exclaimed looking in the mirror for the first time after her makeover.

DeSantis was hoping a makeover would help her in the dating department, and her new look may do just that!

Lisa Watson, 44, was ready for a new back-to-school look. The high school teacher and mom of two wanted to throwback her look to 15 years ago when she first got married.

Watson's daughter Faith kept it real with news that her mom would be getting a makeover. "Her roots need a little touch up. I'm not gonna lie," Faith told Jill Martin.
