Someone who will do everything to avoid being mainstream.
Usually a person who listens to awful music, in the hope the artist(s) will never become popular and therefore will never become mainstream, wears no designer clothing so to be different to peers, goes to midnight gatherings because they do not have anything to do in the mornings as going to work is beneath them or college doesn't start until 11, have a tattoo in Arabic because they went to the UAE for one week on their gap year and have established a spiritual connection with the country, hates their parents because they work in the city for 'the man', wear snapback or beanie hats and have piercings to show there individualism and finally male hipsters grow neatly trimmed facial hair to so they have an artistic nature.
Hipster 1: Hey, Julian have you heard this new band, there have a really abhorrent vibe aimed towards life, but they particularly hate materialism, politics and religion.

Hipster 2: Yes Laurence, I already have there first album on vinyl and I went to there there first live gig. You know? Before they were cool!

Hipster 1: Oh yeah totally. Are we still going to that midnight fixie bike convention at that abandoned warehouse tonight?

A man/woman who wears tight clothing and will deny being a hipster if asked. Usually listens to esoteric music until a non-hipster does. At rocks shows, stands still with one foot tapping along with the music and there thumbs in there pockets and may or may not subtly nod their head with the beat. Added bonus if in more than one band and has a master's degree in pop-culture.
Male hipster: "I wear woman's jeans."
Female hipster: "You're in more than one band? Let's make out."
Male/Female hipster: "You drink pino grigio too?!?! Let's make out."

You, for reading ironic, pseudo-intellectual dictionary entries on the word "hipster".
"These dictionary entries on hipsters are so comical! I'm going to email this link to 800 of my closest acquaintances, head to Value Village, grab a chai and then play kickball in a headband and short-shorts."

Someone who thinks that they are being "special" and "unique" for liking some underground bullshit no one else cares about. And they pointlessly look down on people who don't know anything about indie culture, because that's the only thing they know anything about. They're quick to call the rest of the world conformists when in reality, they are the ones conforming by partaking in a "too cool for mainstream so i am going to reject it by looking and acting like a grungy asshole" way of life only to seem uber-fashionable. They just end up looking like idiots.
1) Hipster: I won't drink at starbucks, it's too corporate.

2)Non-Hipster: I want a Louis Vitton purse because they are cool

Hipster: You're such a conformist, haveing a Louis Vitton purse is so unoriginal. I like my purse I found in the gutter for $4 dollars.

Non-hipster: but it's fugly

Hipster: yah, but no one else has it. It's completely unique.

Non-hipster: that bum over there has something pretty similar though.

Hipster: You're ignorant because you can't see the real beauty in life.
I don't have time for this, I'm gonna go to my cave of an apartment and listen to some indie rock you've probably never heard of....

Non hipster: You need to see a therapist

Hipster: I am my own therapist.

A hipster is someone who is generally looked upon from an outside perspective as "Indie", but what often makes hipsters distasteful is that they pride themselves on being indie and also define themselves as such. However, they will never admit this.*

*Consider this an addition to the other, more detailed definitions.
Person #1: Man, you are suck a damn hipster.

Person #2: No I'm not, I just only wear clothes that most people don't wear, only listen to bands that most people haven't heard of, and force myself to be interested in the arts because it's cool but most people don't.

Person #1: ...Wow
