A vague term used to refer to people who live some sort of "alternative", often artistic lifestyle. The term is associated - although not exactly synonymous - with the term hippie. The term originally came to be used in this sense in 19th century France, in an attempt to liken non-conventional artist types to Romani (gypsies), who the French associated with Bohemia in Central Europe (today part of the Czech Republic).

A hipster who doesn't want to be called a hipster.
Hipster 1: "Hey, man, have you heard of <obscure band>?"

Hipster 2: "Yeah, I used to like them, but now they've sold out. I like their old stuff, like <obscure song from obscure band>. Hey, have you been to <local thrift shop>?"

Hipster 1: "Yeah, but I don't like how they carry stuff from <popular clothing brand>. Clashes with my ironic mustache, you know?"

Hipster 2: "Uh-huh. Hey, listen, aren't hipsters terrible?"

Hipster 1: "Yeah, I was into hipsterism before it was cool. Now it's too mainstream. It's a good thing we're "Bohemian," and not hipsters."

A pretentious, pseudo-intellectual, hipster who smokes pot but still listens to classical music and wears a turtleneck. They pretend to be artists or writers, but have greater ability for sitting in coffee shops all day writing their vanity project on the laptop their daddy bought for them while the unemployment benefits roll in.
"Did you see that bohemian in here yesterday?"

"Yea I really wanted to punch him in the face"
