A hipster is very similar to an Indie Kid. Hipsters generally are snobbish, holier-than-thou sorts of people. They tend insert non-sequiturs about pop-culture into everyday speech, as well as obscure music references, and comments on political goings-on. They're quite fun if you get to know them, but be from another label and you might be snubbed. They frequent coffee shops and the salvation army and know more than you ever will or would hope to about... well, pretty much anything obscure or remotely creative/underground-culture-based.
1: Did you see her shirt? I bet she got it at the salvation army.
2: Oh, yeah, thats that Hipster that works in that coffee shop. She's a bitch, but she's cool.

Usually can be identified by skinny jeans, Tom's shoes, the 'ironic' t-shirt, thick rimmed glasses....They deny being hipsters of course, insisting that they 'don't believe in labels'. They insist on eating organic food, yet they all smoke (the approved hipster brands of cigarettes being Camel Lights, Parliament Lights, & if they're really extra pretentious, then American spirits). They claim to be very open minded & non-judgemental, yet only seem to date, hang out with, befriend, or associate with people that dress like them,like the same music, talk the same, walk the same, etc. They all like to pretend they have some kind of talent when it comes to art, & enjoy watching 'films' instead of movies (the more artsy-fartsy & less sense it makes, the better). They even all eat the same foods. Look in any hipsters basket next time you're at the store,& it'll always be greek yougart, hummus (or supplies to make hummus),some kind of organic, vegan snack that costs a zillion dollars a box, tastes like crap, yet they claim they 'can't live without!', & then some kind of 'ironic' cereal, like capt'n crunch or something like that.
Hipster #1-"I'll take a PBR"
Hipster #2-"I found the BEST brand of organic, cruelty-free, vegan turnip chips at Whole Foods-omg, I CRAVE those things!"
Hipster #3-"They're just too mainstream now-I liked them when no one else even knew about them"

A middle class or rich kid who dresses like a hobo. They are plagued with Alanis Morissette syndrome which makes them misunderstand and fail at being "ironic". Hipsters claim to reject the mainstream and sadly have no idea just how mainsteam they really are.
Hipsters are so mainstream. Ironic, no?

Xenophobic conformists of non-conformity. If you live in an apartment building with a few you can always guarantee they will be drinking and partying every Tuesday night. If you are not like them, they will not speak to you. At all. They are terrified of you. If you want to become friends with one, it must be based on mutual usery (Bring weed/beer.) If they know you smoke, they will be sure to knock on your door. Every. Fucking. Day. If you leave a note on their door, they will never get back to you, even if that note asks them to take over your lease. Often tend to never acknowledge your existence (This is especially true on the west coast.) Listens to horrible music. Will be utterly horrified to find out you don't smoke weed.

Me: "Hey what's up?"
Hipster:"....."
Me:"...Fine, fuck you too."

A non-productive member of society. Typically the offspring of two highly successful parents who live in places like Greenwich, Connecticut or the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the hipster is someone who has failed to achieve the level of success of his or her busy parents and tries to compensate for the insecurities that come with abject failure by conforming to a culture that claims to hate conformity. They shop at thrift stores and try desperately to shed their blue-blooded upbringing by wearing old, ratty flannel shirts and by bleaching and/or rubbing dead fish in their hair.
Person 1: Dude, have you ever been to an urban farmers' market?

Person 2: No, seeing all those hipsters makes me depressed about the future of our society.

a male or female that feels all attention should be directed at him/her. He wears ridiculous clothing that screams "Look at me!" The males often hit on girls that have boyfriends relentlessly until they get their way. In other words, hipsters are girlfriend stealers. They also listen to alternative music. Only. They are perhaps the most closed-minded beings on the face of the earth. When standing in a group they are usually the most obnoxious and loud ones there. Often, a hipster plays a musical instrument. But they only play the songs that are alternative (naturally). If a song is released by their favorite band and becomes popular, they refuse to listen to it because everyone else is. The common word for a song like this is mainstream. An antonym for mainstream is underground.
That guy is such a hipster, he gelled his hair to look like a member of his favorite alternative band.

Although it was once a name for a particular urban subculture, loosely defined by clothing choices, "hipster" has recently come to be roughly synonymous with "person between the ages of 12 and 40 who does not wear sweatpants outdoors."
"That guy once bought a t-shirt at American Apparel; he must be a hipster."
