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 his love of the arts are what really propelled him to continuously pursue more challenging adventures in life. 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 began freelance work.

From the start, Cash has surrounded himself with inspiring people such as Julien d'Ys, Alexi Lubomirski, 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 has a knack for evolving things from what they should be and pushing the limits to where he wants to see them go. 

Cash's work spans the pages of Vogue, Elle, Dazed, Editorialist, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair and more. He has had the privilege of working with photographers Victor Demarchelier, Alexi Lubomirski, Steven Pan, Santiago and Mauricio and Hunter and Gatti to name a few. Cash's ad work includes Dolce and Gabbana, Siviglia, Norma Kamali, Kate Spade, St. John, Seiko, and Sigerson Morrison. He has worked with various celebrities such as Katy Perry, Sienna Miller, Misty Copeland, Anna Kendrick, Jonathan Groff, Michael Douglas, Marisa Tomei, Winona Ryder, Ashley Tisdale, Karrueche Tran, Carmen Ejogo, Mandy Moore, and supermodels Christy Turlington, Alessandra Ambrosio, Sara Sampaio, Joan Smalls, Soo Joo Park, Izabel Goulart, Ashley Graham, and Rachel Hilbert amongst others.

Cash Lawless currently resides in New York City.
