Choosing a makeover to brighten up life can make a woman feel beautiful in her own special way. These days in this busy world, there is sometimes just not enough time to attend to the details. These women made the choice to partake in the makeover of a lifetime.

Celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and TODAY contributor and fashionista Jill Martin found two ladies with great potential and beautiful features to take part in this week’s Ambush Makeover. With the Ambush Makeover glam squad team, makeup artist Edin O’Sullivan and hairstylist Vanessa Collington were about to help these two ladies completely rejuvenate themselves.

Corinne Staves, 52, is a firefighter and wanted to brighten up her life with a dash of color and a bit more than just a trim. The mom of five and grandmother of seven—with more grandkids on the way—has always opted for a natural look. She has never cut or colored her beautiful hair, so today’s makeover promised to enhance her beauty with a dramatic and glamorous new look.

When Staves’s sister Camille saw her after the makeover, she was shocked. “That’s not even you!” she shrieked. Corinne looked incredibly elegant in her green dress, which helped to bring out her beautiful eyes. Her hair was cut, highlighted, and styled to make it more manageable.

When Corinne saw herself in the mirror, she was so happy, she couldn’t believe her eyes. The entire studio was shrieking with surprise and joy.

Enter Kellie Sieber, 52. She was ready to make the transformation back into the working world and take up her job as a computer programmer after being a stay-at-home-mom and raising her three kids. Now was the time to take the big leap. Could our Ambush Team do it?


When Kelly’s husband, Gary, took off the blindfold, he fell in love all over again. His wife looked simply stunning and totally sophisticated. The stylist clothed her in what complimented her natural femininity with a “little black number.”

Sieber’s hair was beautifully styled with layers so that there’s more “movement,” with just a “kiss” of red to finish it off.

“Oh my god! I love it!” said Kelly when she saw her new look.

Watch out, folks! Formidable, lovely ladies coming your way!
