Hair particle problem in 2.9

so i don’t know if I’m getting the settings wrong or something
but my hair doesn’t appear

You have overlays turned off.

it still doesnt appear even when its turned on

i turned it off because the lights were getting in the way

Could you please share a blend with just that object? (I.e. no need for everything else).

ok here it is
Hair Problem.blend (2.3 MB)

Hm, appeared here immediately upon loading:

Could be there’s some graphical problem or driver issue? Try perhaps a newer Blender version.

i will try that
