Born in California and raised all around the world, Cash fell in love with the classical arts at an early age. His passion, his drive and obsession with learning and becoming the best he can be in all areas of life are what really propelled him to continuously pursue more challenging adventures in life, arts, and business. On a suggestion from an industry friend, he decided to expand his artistry into hairstyling in his early 20's. He looks at hair as another medium rather than simply hair and loves the creativity that comes with each experience.
He began his career at the Paul Mitchell Academy and from there spent time in London at the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Academy. Upon returning to the States he joined the Sally Hershberger Salon and from there the Marie Robinson Salon. Although being in the salon world served him well, the true beginning came when he left the conventional behind and entered the world of celebrity hairstyling.
From the start, Cash has surrounded himself with inspiring people such as Alexi Lubomirski, Mark Townsend and Norma Kamali. He attributes much of his success to this set of mentors and friends. His distinct style coupled with a humble disposition has certainly earned him a place in this group of respected artists. Cash’s strengths are his vision, and ability to cooperate with teams to create the greatest outcome for both brands, and clients.
