Someone who doesn't fit any other social group. Listens to indie music. Dresses in a style kindly described as "oddly".
just look at this Pandora profile....THAT is a hipster or young soon-o-be-hipster, if I've ever seen one:
"Hey! I'll just talk about music here, throwing in little tidbits about me. I really like "Indie" (though such differing styles should never be crushed into one genre) bands and things nobody's(at school, anyhow) heard of, so I'm glad Pandora has them. I really like irony, and I would think it amazing if the lyrics of a song reflect effort of intelligence spent on them, rather than the cookie cutter mainstream things out there today.EVen though I'm just 14, I despise the direction music is headed, both lyrically and instrumentally. Where are we, in 1984? Music making machines might have worked in George Orwell's world, but that's why Big Brother would have killed me. On a related note, I was recently distraught to discover that Indie FM in soCal has been replaced by Spanish station. How could they get rid of such a groovy station?

When not, I like reading, writing, debating, having intellectual conversation, knitting, creating theories, talking to cats with different opinions than my own, and riding my totally amazing bike (vintage schwinn with LOOOONG fenders!!!). By the way, despite comments made by some drones I know, I am NOT a hipster. I refuse to submit to an group. WHy limit yourself? (I hang out with self identified nerd, dorks, activists, emos, punks, hipsters, geeks, band people, and drama geeks. However, I hate social branding, just can't convince my ragtag band of amigos.)"
Notice how the girl edits her pandora profile.... she also describes herself as a "student/novelist/poet/blogger"

Look at the station, it's called "Groovy Tunes for Tubular Cats"....seriously?

Men and women, mostly yuppies, in their early to late twenties. They love simple clothes and work at hipster places like American Apparel. Hipster men love to wear slim fitting sweatshirts and straight legged jeans or a solid colored tee, hot shorts, sweatband, and vinatge sunglasses. The women hipsters like to wear a floppy bohemian dress, dark stockings, slouch boots, a blazer, and a pendant necklace that comes down to their chest. When it comes to hair, hipster guys prefer to have scruffy beards and wavy hair- any length. Women have long wavy hair with little or no layers, but with eyebrow length bangs. All hipsters are obsessed with music, style, and movie subcultures. Their main goal is to look "cool", but they never use that word to describe anything.

Anyone who thinks hipsters are from a young age group essentially consider themselves a brand of "hipster" but are in fact merely blissfully, painfully unaware of anything outside of their little uninformed, age-ist universe.

Vintage hipsters (yes, over 35 years old!) still enrage the status quo and run around in black pants like they are cooler than anything going. Don't worry, kids!, all of your complaining and dislike of all these little sub groups that mean next to or absolutely nothing will continue to plague you for the rest of your life, lucky you!
Think we can get into the Maryann Faithfull concert at St Ann's, or will it be sold out to HIPSTERS?

Someone who thinks something unknown is cool, and stops liking it as soon as it becomes popular. These people think they are cool because of it, but generally speaking, they are arrogant bastards who conform to an ideal of non-conformity.
