Maurico Cugat

Hair suspending acrobat, Toulouse

In this hair hang act Cugat is suspended by his hair, performing acrobatic poses. A single strand of hair can potentially carry a weight of up to 100 grams; holding this in theory, and with proper technique, a full head of human hair could eventually hold between 5,600 kg and 8,400 kg, without breaking individual hairs or pulling out any follicles.
