World renown stylists, Louis Licari and Jill Martin pick two lucky ladies for this ambush makeover on the Today Show.
Louis and Jill go through the crowd selecting two willing participants. The ladies they pick are both pretty, but they have put their own look to the wayside in order to devote their time to their families.
For the first glamorous transformation, the style experts pick 56-year-old Janet Carr, from Michigan.
She was a flight attendant for 26 years, before retiring into full=time ‘mom-aging’. She’s a mother of 3 beautiful daughters, two of who accompanied her in the Today Show audience.YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot

During the pre-makeover interview, her oldest daughter has tears of joy pouring down her face as they choose her mother. Kathy describes her makeup routine, but her daughter quickly disagrees saying she doesn’t really have one.
“I’m just overwhelmed, speechless. I can’t wait, I’m very excited.” Said Kathy.

When Janet walks out, her family is beyond surprised and can’t contain their excitement. Her daughters tear up, while it looks like her husband has seen a ghost.
