I know this is an old thread, but just in case you are still looking, you can do it through terminal with the chflags command. you can hide a file/folder by opening terminal and typing
chflags hidden /path/to/folder

The above only unhides a specific folder. Incase you wanted to make all hidden files and folders unhidden you can enter this into terminal:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
Source, and other ways to show the files incase you don't want to use terminal: show hidden files mac
