Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although "hipsterism" is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too "edgy" for the culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The "effortless cool" urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities. Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off of their parent's trust funds.
Hipsters shun mainstream societal conventions that apply to dating preferences and traditional "rules" of physical attraction. It is part of the hipster central dogma not to be influenced by mainsream advertising and media, which tends to only promote ethnocentric ideals of beauty. The concepts of androgyny and feminism have influenced hipster culture, where hipster men are often as thin as the women they date. The muscular and athletic all-American male ideal is not seen as attractive by confident and culturally-empowered hipster women who instead view them as symbols of male oppression, sexism, and misogyny. Likewise, culturally-vapid sorority-type girls with fake blond hair, overly tanned skin, and "Britney Spears tube-tops" are not seen as attractive by cultured hipster males who instead see them as symbols of female insecurity, low self-esteem, and lack of cultural intelligence and independent thinking. Hipsters are also very racially open-minded, and the greatest number of interracial couples in any urban environment are typically found within the hipster subculture.
Although hipsters are technically conformists within their own subculture, in comparison to the much larger mainstream mass, they are pioneers and leaders of the latest cultural trends and ideals. For example, the surge of jeans made to look old and worn (i.e. "distressed"), that have become prevalent at stores such as The Gap, American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Hollister, were originally paraded by hipsters who shopped in thrift stores years before such clothing items were mass produced and sold to the mainstream consumer. The true irony here is that many of the detractors of hipster culture are in fact unknowingly following a path that hipsters have carved out years before them. This phenomena also applies to music as well, as many bands have become successful and known to mainstream audiences only because hipsters first found and listened to them as early-adopters of new culture. Once certain concepts of fashion and music have reached mainstream audiences, hipsters move on to something new and improved.
Because of the rise of various online photo-blog and social networking sites, insights into urban hipster culture is reaching sheltered suburban audiences at an exponential rate. Cultural "norms" have been deconstructed by hipster culture as a whole. Hipsterism is often dismissed as just an image thing by some, but the culture as a whole is effecting changes in society, leading to feelings of insecurity and resentment in people who are no longer a part of the cultural ruling class. For example, a lot of anti-hipster sentiment evidently comes from culturally-clueless suburban frat boy types who feel that the more sensitive, intelligent, and culturally aware hipster ideal threatens their insecure sense of masculinity. Anti-hipster sentiment often comes from people who simply can't keep up with social change and are envious of those who can.
A conversation outside a hipster bar in downtown NYC:

Frat Boy #1: Dude, are you having any luck picking up chicks in there?

Frat Boy #2: Man...I haven't experienced anything like this before. These chicks are totally rejecting me and going for all these hipster guys in tight pants and shaggy hair instead.

Frat Boy #1: Maybe we should head back up to that bar in Murry Hill where you hooked up with that drunk b*tch from Alpha Sigma Phi last week?

Frat Boy #2: Yeah...I don't think we have what it takes to compete with these guys in here. These hipster chicks won't even give us the time of the day!

People who complain about hipsters.
A true hipster would love hipsters, cause everyone else apparently hates them.

People, usually between the ages of 15 and 20 who hang out at Starbucks and/or Barnes and Noble and drink massive amounts of coffee and read books, or go on their laptops for hours on end. These people claim to have no money and so they purchase all of their clothing at Salvation Army or Goodwill, yet show off their Apple computer or brand new iPhone. They are also huge fans of cigarettes, and look down on people who drink alcohol, even though they secretly go out and drink and smoke weed every weekend with their fellow hipsters. They love the outdoors and drink "healthy" things like Arizona Green Tea by the gallon. Oh, and most of them usually wear very tight pants and have short, butchy haircuts, regardless of their gender.
Have you seen Leslie around lately?

Yeah, I think she's turned into a hipster, I saw her at Starbucks the other day...

That's too bad...

“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).

You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.
Person 1: Lol, that guy is such a hipster! Let's make fun of him and make ourselves look cool! Aren't I so funny guys!!

Person 1:...Guys?

Person 2: Your ignorance is sickening. Just leave.

A person who makes being lazy trendy. A hipster gets an easy job and a shaggy looking haircut by rolling out of bed and picking out his clothes from the thrift shop in the dark. Instead of reading the news, a hipster can babble on incessantly about philosophy and art, going from one subject to another sounding seemingly intelligent and full of knowledge, but really being too lazy to coordinate his thoughts.
Greta (to a hipster in a Starbucks)- Wow, I like your American style. I heard that this crazy clothing and modern art book that you're reading are trendy now in American Starbucks.
Dax- I don't know what you're talking about. I just grabbed these clothes upon waking so they are my own look, and this book I foound in a trash dump wandering around today and this coffee shop I just wandered into, it just happens to be a Starbucks.

A person who hasn't been accepted as an adult by anyone with half a brain. These people are the product of our fuck-up, filth-ridden modern day world. In most cases they come from a dysfunctional up-bringing or just simply have no clue on how to be themselves. They are usually quite out of touch with reality.

You can spot these clowns a mile away. The guys, usually wearing what would appear to be a pair of girls jeans, you just want to plow your fist into their scrawny, perverted-facial-hair covered face. The girls(some being very attractive) usually hide their beauty under a hodge-podge, haggard mess of asinine, mix-matched clothing.
Anyone reading this who doesn't fit these descriptions, I know you know EXACTLY what and who I'm talking about.

Mostly teens and 20s, but sadly, many people are like this in their 30s. Anyone like this in their 40s, see definition: PATHETIC.
A Hipster is a person who is trying hard to be something or someone, or a person who is trying hard to not be anything or anyone at all, and has no idea how to just be as they are.
