Woman gets amazing makeover before her 50th birthday

Woman Gets Amazing Makeover Before Her 50th Birthday

Kathie Lee and Hoda do weekly makeover segments on their show, and Thursday's episode was no exception.

Tracy from Idaho is 49 years old. Her big 5-0 birthday is in January, and Tracy felt like she'd had the same look for way too long.

She and her husband had to give total control to the team -- agreeing there shouldn't be any rules for the makeover. Cue the transformation!

Her husband's reaction? 'Holy cow!'

'Oh my...," Tracy said as she saw herself in the mirror.

'That's a hot, sexy haircut," one of the hosts said.

She looked great before, but her shorter, darker hairdo really seems to make her look even younger.

The recurring segment has its fair share of fans. This Twitter user admits she's a "sucker" for them.

This makeover was probably a special one for Hoda, who has been celebrating her own 50th birthday all week.

On Wednesday night, her "Today" family got together for a birthday party in her honor. Kathie Lee was behind it, according to a Facebook post.

As for those makeovers, check out the "Today" website to watch other guests' amazing transformations.

so that's how you make a 50 year old woman look better?
you comb her hair over half her face?

OhKay.... got it!

I don't get it. Except for a bit less hair she doesn't look any different.

Looks easy! Powder the shine off, and cover my right eye with hair. Way better

I have to say, normally, these make overs are a huge bust. The person usually doesn't look younger and only occasionally looks better. This one was way better than most.

The bigger question is what is behind these women's need for a "makeover".. so let's break it down
When women meet a man they are interested in, they do their best to attract him...they stop reaching for the extra 2-3 slices of cheesecake and buying the larger size of sweatpants.. in other words-they make the e-f-f-o-r-t..... then once they figure it's safe- it's back to the cheesecake and XXL sweatpants...the man is no longer attracted to them but instead of going to the gym or working out, they think a new haircut or manicure will do the trick...it doesn't ,and that is the flaw in these makeovers

EVERY woman seems to get that SAME "bob" cut once she turns 50. It's the standard "I'm-50-or-older-and-I'm-trying-to-look-hipper-and-stylish" hair cut.

I'd have rather seen them style and color her long hair into a more professional and mature "do."

Older women CAN wear long hair if it's an age-appropriate style ( longer layers, blunt at the ends and not scraggly ) and it's a more individual look.

The Bob is sooooooo cookie cutter.

I think this cut suits her face.

When my ex kept going on and on about getting a makeover and wanting to change I finally said ok--then brought her home some knee pads

No wonder she's an "ex" .... you're vile. Sure she's glad to be rid of such an "UNgentlemanly" slug. The change she wanted was to be rid of your insults and abuse.

Professional make-up and hair makes a HUGE difference in how a woman looks. But good luck getting it right at home on your own.
