Get Stuff We Love
Two busy moms came to the TODAY Plaza hoping for a hip new look and came away with head-turning styles that left their family speechless!
First up is 47-year-old Angela de Jong from Memphis, Tennessee. The busy mom is in the city with her family to attend a benefit for St. Jude Hospital.
Angela's had a tough few years because her daughter Alyssa has been battling cancer but Alyssa is doing great now and they're looking forward to celebrating.
"I think this is very exciting because this means a lot to our family," Angela told TODAY. The Ambush Makeover team was ready to pamper this incredibly deserving mom and the results were stunning.
All anyone could say when Angela walked out was simply "Oh my gosh!"
Her stunning layered bob is courtesy of hairstylist Arsen Gurgov and the auburn hue selected by Louis Licari is the perfect complement for her skin tone. It even matches Alyssa's gorgeous hair!
TODAY contributor and style expert Jill Martin chose a hip mono-chromatic outfit to complete the look. The leather jacket is perfect for a fun night out and the leopard pumps add a pop of fun to the style.
Next up is 30-year-old Courtney Stanley from Phoenix, Arizona. Courtney is a mother of two with a part-time job teaching hip hop dance to kids. She recently lost 55 pounds and her mom Kyle encouraged her to celebrate with an Ambush Makeover.
"I'm so proud of her she's worked so hard going to the gym every day," Kyle told TODAY. "She deserves this."
It's safe to say Kyle was blown away by Courtney's new look!
Louis added depth to Courtney's golden blonde hair with perfectly blended highlights to add contrast and Arsen updated the look by creating a chic shoulder-length bob.
"I don't even recognize myself," Courtney said.
Jill Martin styled Courtney in an awesome outfit that can walk the line between casual and dressy. "If you're going to buy one piece of outerwear, a vest is the way to go," Jill said of the quilted leather vest.
Congrats to both ladies on their gorgeous new looks!
