Leva Bonaparte is happy to share how she uses lubricant on a very public forum— but it’s probably not what you’re thinking. In a recent TikTok post, the Southern Charm restaurateur shared an unexpected beauty hack that includes, yes, a nice dollop of lube. 

How to Watch

Watch Southern Charm on Peacock and the Bravo App.

In the post, the Southern Hospitality boss showed off a slick, wavy hairstyle. “This WET look brought to you by LUBE,” she wrote, adding a laughing emoji. Tagging Astroglide in her caption, the Charleston mama wrote: “Wet look hack! Try the LUBE hack!” She combed her fingers through her hair, then held up a tube of the very stuff that gave her the hairstyle du jour. 

Leva looked gorgeous as per usual in the video, wearing light jeans and a turquoise muscle tank top. Wet waves aside, her beauty look comprised fluttery lashes, cheeks with a sun-kissed glow, and a glossy pale-pink pout. She also loaded up on accessories, wearing a chunky silver watch, gold bangle bracelets, and glimmering hoop earrings. 

Though Astroglide is not a styling product we’d previously considered, Leva’s video has opened our minds. Her hair looks as shiny, lush, and expertly styled as ever in the TikTok post.

In fact, if we didn’t know better, we’d assume Leva had just stepped out of a salon. 

When Leva isn’t taming her tresses, she’s managing four restaurants. (You can take a tour of one of them, Bourbon N’ Bubbles, in the clip above.) The Southern Charm cast dines regularly at her establishments.

Leva was put in the hot seat during a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen appearance last November when host Andy Cohen asked her which cast member is the worst tipper. 

At the time, Leva said Craig Conover was the stingiest with gratuities, but she later clarified her comments. The restaurant boss shared in the comments section of the [Queens of Bravo] account that she misunderstood the question. “[S]orry I thought [Andy] said worst temper,” she wrote after the show, noting that Craig is in fact “NOT” a “bad tipper.”

Speaking of Craig and restaurants, the sewing expert is backing a new eatery in New York City with his buddy Austen Kroll. Carriage House serves elevated comfort food and has viral menu items including a butter candle. When Taylor Ann Green recently took her first solo trip to the Big Apple for her birthday, she made sure to try the melty menu item.
