What better way for two women to start Fourth of July weekend than with stunning Ambush Makeovers!

Our glam squad dream team of celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and TODAY Style Squad member Jill Martin hit the plaza in search of two ladies ready to start anew.

Lisa Graham

Louis and Jill first worked their magic on Lisa Graham, 45, from Millersville, Maryland. The accountant loves going to the pool with her kids and playing tennis. Graham had "virgin hair," which means she had never colored it before.

"I definitely need a makeover," she confessed to Jill.

Graham walked down the red carpet with highlights in her new, slightly lighter hair. Louis deemed her "a beautiful New York City chic girl."

She rocked the first outfit she tried on with Jill, an adorable cold-shoulder dress paired with a gold necklace.

Janet Easterday, 51, from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, loves to run and coaches cross country at a middle school where she also teaches English. Jill told her that she would turn her into a "hot teacher."

The Ambush team stepped in and gave Easterday an Ambush Makeover perfect for the Fourth of July!

"You look fabulous!" Easterday's sister said.

"She loves stripes," her niece chimed in.

Jill stayed on theme for the holiday weekend by dressing Easterday in a red-and-blue-striped number. Louis lightened and warmed up the teacher's hair color with golds and honeys.

He also said Easterday is "on pace to be a runner. Look at that body!"
