Pope's breakthrough came as a glamour model in British tabloid, The Sun. Building upon this notoriety, she was subsequently linked with Prince Harry.

In 2007, Pope designed and launched her own brand of clip-in hair extensions, Hair Rehab London, appearing on the ITV reality television series Tycoon.
