: I saw a TV show where a woman were hang by her hair and dancing.
: Is it fake or real? How is it possible to do this without suffering? I think it would damage roots and cause hair loss.

Yes, it can easily be done by using good technique to make the tension on each hair as early equal as possible.
If you have 100,000 hairs and put one tenth of an ounce tension on each, that can lift over 600 pounds. In metric, that would be 3 grams of tension on each to lift 300 kilograms.
