So I'm working with my model and I decided it should probably have some hair on the side. So I do the whole weight paint thing and added hair in that area, so then I created the hair and combed it down shown here: enter image description here

Alright, so that's ok. But when I go to Object Mode: enter image description here I don't want to have to redo the whole thing but if it must happen it must, any suggestions?

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, when I remove Children it calms down but the hair doesn't appear in the correct areas. It protrudes in any area it wants to around the model. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Looks like particle settings are ok and there is something wrong with the mesh geometry then. Are there modifiers on the emitter object/head? Subdivision, armature? $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Well, I discovered that the reason why the hair looked significantly different than the particle editor was that when I went to solid view I was later in the timeline and I had Hair Dynamics enabled. Therefore the hair went all over the place. Just make sure your timeline is at 0 or 1 when you work with this stuff, OK?
