Celebrity hairstylist Louis Licari and TODAY Style Squad member Jill Martin had a

its hands on her hair.

Jaynes-Dyke mentioned she's always wanted an Ambush Makeover.

was so excited she was shaking!

Upon her big reveal, Jaynes-Dyke's sisters Jackie and Lorrie
couldn't help but squeal with excitement.


Jaynes-Dyke's sisters were absolutely shocked!

Jaynes-Dyke was speechless as soon as she saw herself in the

Licari also softened up her color, and Martin completed the
transformation with a big change from Jaynes-Dyke's typical
shorts-and-T-shirt look. She had her rocking a lace tunic, dark
jeans and a pair of blue sandals for a casual but stylish look.
