Passionately professional: A writer and magazine publisher, Nicky Pope has specialised in the hair and beauty industry for 18 years during which time she has edited or published several trade hair magazines and written a popular consumer hairdressing guide. In 2000 she co-founded the British industry monthly Creative HEAD magazine, before moving on in 2005 to publish the UK edition of prestige title Tribu-te magazine. In 2011 she launched International Hair Artist Agency (IHAA Ltd) with Mike Vincent which invites the international hair brands and exhibition presenters to enjoy shows and seminars from hairdressing’s most noted artists. It is arguably the hairdressers’ first agency specifically created for shows, workshops, or more globally, the artistic direction of a brand. In 2012 Nicky and Mike brought the respected Tribute Show to London, receiving great acclaim from the industry.
