For some reason, the Apple’s OS X 10.9.3 update has been hiding the /Users directory for a lot of users. So, if you need easy access to that folder, you’ll need to enter in a Terminal command. To bring back the Users folder, just enter this command into Terminal:sudo chflags nohidden /UsersEnter your password, and your Users folder should reappear in Finder. It seems like not everyone out there who updated to OS X 10.9.3 is seeing this behaviour, but if you are, this Terminal command does the trick. Many users experiences a hidden /Users folder after upgrading to OS X 10.9.3, here’s how to fix | 9to5Mac

We told you about an issue with the OS X 10.9.3 update yesterday, that caused the /Users folder to disappear from Finder. Turns out the issue was actually due to iTunes 11.2, released on the same day, and Apple has released an update to fix the issue.
iTunes 11.2.1 was released, and here’s how Apple describes the bug that it fixed in the update:
The folders listed below might appear to be missing after installing iTunes 11.2 on OS X Mavericks. This can happen if you have Find My Mac enabled in iCloud System Preferences.
The update is available for OS X 10.6.3 and up, and can be downloaded directly from this link (224MB) or you can check the “Updates” tab on the Mac App Store to install iTunes 11.2.1.
