It's a rainy day on the TODAY Plaza, but fans still braved the weather for the chance to get an Ambush Makeover!
Style expert Jill Martin and celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari spent the morning providing a stylish transformation to two deserving participants, from fabulous haircuts to dapper new duds.
Read on to get the look yourself!
Gretchen Moorman, who works hard as a teacher, was plucked from the plaza to get a makeover this morning. She's here with her husband, Dan, and her two kids, Molly and Luke. Her normal look is kind of casual, so Martin decided to dress her in a flirty dress that's the perfect combination of style and comfort.
Tahari ASL Women's Short Sleeve Tiered Tea Length Dress, $74 (usually $148), Amazon
A tiered dress is such a fun look for day or night. And this bold color really pops!
Off the Shoulder Sleeveless Tiered Midi Dress, $29, Amazon
This more affordable option has more of a dramatic tiered style. It's flowy, fabulous and available in seven different colors.
BaubleBar Gabriela Tiered Tassel Earrings, $48, Bloomingdale's
Sadly, the exact earrings she was styled in are currently sold out. But, we did find these very similar ones that are also by BaubleBar. They pair really nicely with the tiered dress style.
Light Blue Tassel Earrings, $15, Amazon
And if you're looking for more of a fun color, these affordable tassel earrings are on Amazon in 29 different colors.
Rosalie Ankle-Strap Sandals, $139, Talbots
This sleek strappy heel is very versatile. Wear it for date night or a wedding. Although the leopard print is not in stock at the moment, we love a simple black heel. It's also available in white, blue and magenta.
Elsi Baby Cheetah Suede Single Strap Heels, $31, Lulus
For a sassy animal-print heel, we found this affordable ankle-strap heel at Lulus. This style features a 4-inch stiletto heel and a cushioned insole.
Since Father's Day is this weekend, we decided to treat a special dad to an Ambush Makeover. Jerry Garguilio is from Long Island, New York, and was nominated by his daughter, Joelle. He loves the beach, so Martin decided to give him a summery new look he could still wear in the sand.

This paisley-print shirt from JCPenney offers an even bolder print that would make a great gift if your dad's the adventurous type.

Martin chose these navy chinos for their versatility. Dress them up with a button-down, or pair them with a short-sleeved polo for a clean-cut look.
Cotton Chinos, $18, H&M
These cotton chinos from H&M feature an elasticized waistband for extra comfort.
Cole Haan Zerogrand Gray Stitchlite Oxfords, $180, Men's Warehouse
The stitched pattern on these oxfords make them breathable and suitable for any season. Martin picked these shoes because they can step up any outfit, offering a more polished look without compromising comfort.

These oxfords feature a similar stitched pattern to the Cole Haan oxfords. They're available at Nordstrom Rack in other neutral colors, too.
