Neo Hippies come in two forms: the real and the fake. First we will deal with the real. Real neo hippies are individuals that come in all different colors, sizes, subcultures and habits, but all agree on one thing: free is best and everyone's invited! These environmentally and socially-conscious people are inclusive, in tune (with the earth and themselves, recognizing the good and bad within each) people that love listening to late '60's/ early '70's music, watching '60's/'70's movies and think Bob Dylan is a prophet. Neo hippies embrace all types of music though. (They may also listen to Phish, but this band usually identify the preferences of fake neo hippies.) Although they usually attempt to be extremely health conscious (vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, yoga, meditation), they most definitely smoke copious amounts of pot, most times cigarettes and partake in harder drugs with no remorse; or don't do drugs at all because they feel it clouds their state of consciousness. They do not mind a smelly person and usually have personal hygiene issues themselves. Love the great outdoors and go camping, hiking, backpacking at least 7 times per year. Has gone on at lease two trips to the mountains solo. Sometimes can be characterized by flowy clothing (women); but as stated before, the real neo hippie is person of many undertakings and attitudes, so can not be identified by clothing. Definitely into Boca burgers (even if they eat meat), incense, health food stores, Patchouli, thrift stores finds (which is distinct from 'hipster' thrift store style) and making sure everyone feels a part of their parties, gatherings, etc. They realize that inclusive is the new exclusive because the people that are there are the people that are suppose to be there. Can be found volunteering at the local non profit, community-oriented organization. Usually a self-described activist that is anti-war that frequents protest marches and loves 'organizing.'

Fake neo hippies are usually white suburban kids who often wear patchwork pants (guys and girls), plaid shirts (guys) and have dreadlocks (girls and guys). They love Phish, Umphrey's McGee and String Cheese Incident. Very inclusive group of individuals that are drawn to others that dress and look the same and are frightened by diversity. Basically yuppies and suburbanites who decide to wear patchwork instead of Gap, but possess the same shallow ideals and large bank accounts care of mommy and daddy.

I once heard an excellent word to describe the fake neo hippies: trustafarians.
If you have ever had a party where everyone's invited, you may be a real Neo Hippie .

If you have been to more than 10 Phish concerts but have never had a conversation longer than 30 minutes with a person of color, you are indeed a fake Neo Hippie . Please check yourself!!

A person who is from the suburbs, yet they smell bad and are poorly dressed. Loves Reggae and "Jam Music". Every band this person listens to will be more relevant than every band you listen to, and their drugs will be better even if they are total shite.
What kind of Neo hippie are you? I'm a business Neo Hippie!

Kids these days who want things such as "world peace" and to stop "global warming" because "it is all our fault" because "we are wasteful and don't recycle and are selfish."

Basically, these kids want what Al Gore wants, an end to "global warming" and some world leaders solving their problems. Modified hippie/hippy principles, though most of them don't smoke pot. They buy 100% "organic" bags that have SAVE THE WHALES/POLAR BEARS/NORTH POLE/OZONE LAYER/EARTH emblazoned on the front that "support the fight against global warming" and don't object to socialized healthcare.

These kids are clueless, most of the time, and just want to be "politically active" without being politically active.
That girl Mary bought a "Save the North Pole" bag form Timberland and wore peace sign earrings and started preaching to us abouthow we should share what we give and recycle. She's sucha a bogus neo-hippie.

Neo-hippie (or just hippy) is a name given to modern hippies, who, while retaining some aspects of the '60s hippie movement, have changed in some areas, for example by embracing punk values of anarchism, anti-establishmentarianism, feminism and acceptance of homosexuality.

Along with goths they form part of the middle-class backlash against chavs, seeking to disassociate themselves with what is seen as a working class, conventional standard, they have created their own distinct youth subculture.

Often seen on skateboards, listening to Green Day/Nirvana, moshing, wearing Vans (wide tonged skate shoes) and/or combat trousers.
There is nothing wrong with being a hippy.
