Makeover difficulty rating: 5

It's hard not to make a significant improvement when Ryan Gosling is directing your haircut and wardrobe choices.

3. Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) on Boy Meets World

Makeover difficulty rating: 4

Topanga was also super-hot before, but she gets bonus points for spending a few minutes of this episode with half her hair cut and the other half still long to prove a point about vanity.

5. Joey Potter (Katie Holmes) on Dawson's Creek

Makeover difficulty rating: 6

Joey learned the hard way that sometimes all it takes is an updo, some bronzer, and a dark lip to get a boy's attention.

6. Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) in Mean Girls

Via hotflick.net

Makeover difficulty rating: 3

Cady's inherent good looks required very little work: loose waves, some heavy liner, and a super-glossy lip.

7. Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) in The Princess Diaries

Via imdb.com

Makeover rating: 8

Eyebrow tweezing and hair de-frizzing take some effort, but Mia's makeover loses points for the take-off-your-glasses-and-you're-suddenly-beautiful cliché.

8. Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) on Family Matters

Makeover rating: 2

One point for dropping the glasses, one point for dropping the suspenders. And yes, technically that's Stephan Urquelle, but it shows just how easy an Urkel makeover would have been.
