Holly Carmen, 51, from Norman, Oklahoma, was visiting New York City with her sons Jacob and Jayden when she was picked from the crowd in the Today show plaza on Thursday for a make-over from head to toe.

Even though it was Jayden's 13th birthday, he and his older brother dutifully stood in the rain with their mother in the hope that they would attract the attention of contemporary style expert Jill Martin and celebrity stylist Louis Licari.

Not only does the mother celebrate her youngest son becoming a teenager, but she also tastes Jacob's acceptance in dentistry when she was selected for an ambush makeover.

& # 39; I am very blessed to have two boys. I really like it, & said Holly, although she admitted that she was missing in the style department.

& # 39; I never know how to put something together & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; I have no faith in makeup or hair or anything like that, so [I want] someone to show me what to do.

& # 39; My normal look is a T-shirt and jeans, so I would like something with a bit more style, & # 39; she remarked. & # 39; What I would really like is to just have a good style and look younger. & # 39;

Holly looked young and stylish when she stepped on stage to show off her new look and get approval from both of her sons.

& # 39; Oh my. . . you look good, mama, & Jacob said to her.

The mother was just as surprised when she turned around and looked at herself in the mirror for the first time since her makeover.

& # 39; That's great, & # 39; she said.

Louis explained that he and his team wanted to give Holly a & # 39; stronger sense of style & # 39 ;, so her hair was cut to chin length before he brightened up her dark brown hue with golden highlights & # 39; & # 39 ;.

Approval: both her sons were amazed by her new appearance. & # 39; Oh my. . . you look good, mama, & Jacob said to her

She explained that she likes to sit comfortably and normally wears jeans and a T-shirt or a sweatshirt. Although she would like a refurbished look, she emphasized that she still wants to feel at ease.

& # 39; I would like to have an ambush makeover because I don't really wear makeup. I never colored my hair or anything, & she said. & # 39; So it will be fun. Who wouldn't want it? & # 39;

Angie & # 39; s mother Mary couldn't wait to see her daughter's new look as she walked on stage.

& # 39; O my God! Great, & # 39; said her mother.

Angie was just as impressed when she turned to look in the mirror and a & # 39; wow & # 39; while staring at her reflection.

She received golden highlights and a stylish haircut, and Louis pointed out that her hair was long enough that she could pull it up when she was serving as a police officer.

Angie wanted to look chic but casual, and Jill said she was immediately comfortable in the camouflage linen blazer and white jeans in which she had dressed her.

The stylist gave the look an accessory with black loafers and red beaded statement earrings peeking out from under her hair.
