It's finally starting to feel like fall on the plaza, and what better way to embrace the season than with cool Ambush Makeovers!

Our Ambush Makeover team of stylist to the stars Louis Licari and “captivating queen of couture” (as Kathie Lee Gifford called her) Jill Martin found two special ladies who were on girls' trips to New York City.

Tracy Hunt of Oklahoma came to the plaza with her daughter Riley for an Ambush Makeover! The 44-year-old is pursuing a master's degree while teaching eighth grade full-time. While looking at her daughter, Hunt said of her makeover, "This is one of the most exciting moments of my life other than having this girl.”

Riley added, "She’s so selfless. She never really takes time for her, and so this is much needed."
