A Hipster is a neo-beatnik bent on individuality and seeking a culture previously underground or unique. The word Hipster is synonymous with poser. See poser. A hipster will never claim being a hipster unless they are jokingly denouncing hipsterism and are in fact an individual.
"Hipster chicks are hot, I like the way they dress, they listen to good music"
"Yes, but creative women with their own tastes who dress like hipsters, and listen to hipster music out of their own enjoyment are the ones you want to talk to".

hipsters, usually some where between 16 and 24 years old, are in people in the process of breaking their ties with the ska punk "scene" that they dearly loved as a teenager. Their main form of transportation is a fixed gear road bike. Guy hipsters ussally wear skinny jeans, self designed t-shirts(printed drawn, spray painted, ect.). Girl hipsters will sport just about anything that doesn't have a brand logo on it that can be found in their local thrift store, both are often seen with lesbian-esque haircuts and chuck taylor's or vans. Politically, hipsters are very liberal and often are socialist and are in love with Abbie Hoffman and Che Guevara but are too lazy to start any kind of a revolution. Musically, hipsters listen to many genres, some bands most hipsters listen to are the beatles, atleast one of conor obersts projects, the cure, modest mouse, matt and kim, mgmt, the smashing pumpkins and the smiths, many hipsters are also secretly in love with my chemical romance but won't admit it unless they catch their hipster friend listening to them although they often have intense hatred for followers of the christ-core scene.

Basically a hipster is your modern day Amish. They don't like the trends of the world, so they shun them and live their own worthless lives.
Everyone in the world loves stupid designer things and doesn't appreciate the finer things in life, such as this bag i found in a tree. No one else has it. Hipsters are cheap.

Aged indie kids, Hipsters still maintain the air of snobbery, still shop at salvation army, and still have a completely astonishing array of knowledge when it comes to obscure music, pop-culture non-sequiturs, and political sneers. Absolutely a blast to be friends with, hell to be enemies of, hipsters are the most bi-polar of all the stereotypes when it comes to how they treat you. Can be recognized by books like "The Clockwork Orange", "Everything is Illuminated", or obscure philosophy books, by authors akin to Dostoevsky.
"Dude, remember sarah?"
"yeah, that little indie kid, why?"
"i saw her in a coffee shop they other day, reading The Brothers. She now goes by Anthurium..."
"Oh, our little indie kid has transformed into a hipster butterfly!"

Hipsters are people that try too hard to be different (and genuinely do think that they're being different), by rejecting anything they deem to be too popular.
Ironically, so many other people also try too hard to be different that they all wind up being the exact same, so hipsters arent actually different at all, theyre just people that are snobbier and more annoying about their taste in "alternative" things, which are all popular now thanks to the other hipsters.
Hipsters pride themselves on liking things that no one else likes, and normally only really like them because they think no one else likes them and that theyre being unique. This is being delusional because all the other hipsters also like the same things.
Hipster: "I love Mumford and Sons because they're so different to popular music nowadays."
A Million Other Hipsters: "I love Mumford and Sons because they're so different to popular music nowadays."
Mumford and Sons consequently becom a popular band because of their large hipster following of people who think they're being different for listening to them.

(Note: this isn't a hate on Mumford and sons, it's just an example!)

a "hipster": vneck wearing, pot smoking, photography lover, bike riding, skinny jean, weird-ass music listener. they are very easy to find step into stores such as, Forever 21, Urban Outfiters, American Apparel blah blah blah... Hipsters HATE being called "scene kids". When you go into their myspace profile all you see is random retarded photography. They usually have large friend counts too. When they take photos they usually cover their mouths and heavily photoshop the pictures. Hipsters have taken over sites such as myspace, facebook, twitter and the most famous one TUMBLR. They think there cool because they wear ugly shoes and ride fixed gear bikes. Hipsters are like roaches. They can survive anything....even a nuclear bomb. but the most important thing you have to know about a hipster is....THEY ARE F*CKING ANNOYING
Guy 1: dude that scene bitch on myspace "WhoIsKat" is fucking annoying. Guy 2: oh shes no scene shes a "hipster" Guy 1: dude can we just kill her already?!!?!

people who crave attention/security and try to obtain it by being unnatural or "counter-culture." Often they dress in vintage clothing or random articles of clothing that would not be worn usually at that time. ie: a skull-cap during the summer or not suitable clothing for a certain occasion. Frequently hipsters meet people by being different and usually become friends with that person until they must appear "counter-culture" to the rest of the world in their attempt to meet more people and gain a false security in a group. Most do not have friends and are often seen alone in an unfamiliar environment or dazing off in the distance with company of another person(s).
See that weirdly dressed girl staring off in the distance? I bet she's a hipster.
