look up any word, like fleek:
Contrary to popular belief, the hipster ranges in age from teenager all the way up to elderly and everywhere in between. Younger hipsters generally receive their hipster indoctrination from elder burned-out hipsters and hippies who masquerade as qualified teachers and professors.

They can be spotted wearing carefully ill-fitting clothes, about a size too small, in order to project an image of poverty-chic.

Hipsterism requires strict obedience to recycling rituals, and a prohibition of creating new ideas or items. Subsequently, the hipster will generally be seen wearing logos from mid to late 20th Century capitalist brands. They also like to wear fashion-glasses in order to project a false image of intelligence.

They possess a deep misunderstanding of the word ironic, preferring to use the definition from Alanis Morisette's song rather than the dictionary.

Hipsters generate unusual and offensive odors due to their affinity for organic human waste products and a natural aversion to personal hygiene. In the male of the species, you can spot clouds of fleas living in their beards off of uneaten bits of cafe fare. In the female of the species, fleas can be found in their unshaven armpit hair.
I sure wish that hipster would take a bath. Has he been wearing that Atari T-Shirt since 1978?

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!)

Hipster: Geek wannabe with too much fashion sense and not enough intelligence to qualify for the easy, unintended coolness that Geekdom is. Simply put, someone trying so hard to be a geek that they fail simply because of their attempt.
That hipster over there is trying so hard to be a geek that he FAILS just by trying.

A term given to people who choose to develop their own cultural tastes and not support those adopted by mainstream culture. The whole hipster argument exists solely because society is becoming less intelligent, and because of this anything which possesses an intellectual capacity is dismissed as pretentious art school hipster shit. The term hipster is usually used as derogatory term to describe people who maintain a level of INTELLIGENCE. Contrary to popular belief hipsters don't try to be cool. This is a preconception maintined by misinformed individuals who misinterpret their mainstream defiance as a popularity statement. Although people regarded as 'hipsters' can present themselves in an obnoxious manner, it is not intentional and is most likely a by- product of their cultural tastes. Much the discrimination against these people is exercised by narrow minded people who remain intimidated by the misconception that intelligent people take pride in chastising the limited cultural diversity of other individuals. Furthermore, since when did being your own person become a bad thing?
Conformist: God, youre such a hipster...

Hipster: You say that as though its a bad thing, but I'm only trying to live how I want. If you want to continue representing the banality of mainstream society then be my guest...

A person who is usually a teenager to somebody in their 20s, and often going to college at places such as UC Davis and San Francisco State. They usually like "indie music" and alternative music, often like to ride fixies, and when something they enjoyed goes "in" then they get frustrated because they hate being apart of the mainstream. They think they're above everybody else because they're different
when it's really just ironic because they're belonging to a group by being a hipster in the first place, which defeats the purpose they have to not be mainstream.
They often shop at thrift stores, like bands like arcade fire, but they won an award so I guess they're not "cool" anymore because they're mainstream. They spend a ton of money to look like hobos basically from going to thrift stores.
They wear oldass clothes to look "trendy".
They are often found all over San Francisco.
Their music often defines them.
Basically, they are going out of their way just to look different because different=cool
"Angelica Mercedes is such a hipster. She purposely tries to be different to be cool, but its sad because they are so many Goddamn hipsters in this school that being a hipster is mainstream"

A social group typically in their mid 20's to early 30's, Hipsters are an offshoot of Gen Y thought to derive from a class of disgruntled upper-middle-class suburbanites, frustrated with the lack of culture that comes with having a life devoid of poverty. Disenfranchised in their youth by the Abercrombie generation, Hipsters-with the support of generous trust funds-propagated into various cultural centers around the country, and proceeded to replace the endemic and unique qualities of such areas with urban outfitters, american apparels, buffalo exchanges, and a host of Pho noodle joints and falafel stands. Thus, while Hipsters pride themselves on being mainstream contrarians, they in fact unwittingly create a "sub-culture" as large and annoying as the one they rail against.
