People who listen to bands no one has ever heard of and can be rather cocky. They never call themselves hipsters and deem many things as "mainstream"

Many teenage girls of these days attempt to pose as hipsters through their Instagram and twitter post, but do not succeed.
Girl 1: I'm going to post a picture of my converse with a vintage filter

Girl 2: OMG so hipster! 1!1!2!222!!

Girl 3: I'm wearing an oversized sweater and combat boots, how hipster am I?

Originally intended to be a word to describe individuals with "alternative" (as opposed to "mainstream") tastes in art and culture (and they explicitly suggest it by the way they dress etc) . However the modern adaptation of it is used very liberally. Two individuals can be each other's "hipster" if they have opposite tastes in art and culture. It is also used as a retaliation against less known art which have fan following from art critics by some people who can't relate to it.
I read a review of an album on some well known website or magazine. It has great reception. I listen to that album for myself but I don't really enjoy it. But I feel paranoid that so many other love it. Thus I declare these people as "hipsters" so I can feel that I have superior taste in music.

People who pay lots of money for clothes inspired by the '70s hippie movement but have no idea what enlightenment is, are uncomfortable with nudity, use the saying "good vibes" as a trend not actually knowing how to experience real vibrations and energy, can't go into nature without their iPhone.

Pretencious assholes who feels special by trying to act, and dress more important and knowledgble then other people. When infact 90% of the time is nothing but a poser and vapid as all hell. typically live in the "downtown" areas of cities and extremely unfriendly. Have meaningless tattoos for shock value. Wear recycled or vintage clothing, because buying something new is too mainstream. Or shop at overpriced stores like urban outfitters. Have glasses they don't even need, too appear intellectual. Listen to God awful music by undiscovered artists. And have a hobby such as knitting, being vegan, writing, or making terrible art. Mostly unlikable obnoxious people who arnt half as cool as they think they are.
Today I went to Williamsburg and saw fifty hipsters who looked exactly the same. Shocking

The enemy of the emo. The two groups generally hate each other. Emo people will generally try to drown hipsters in the mainstream, while hipsters will put the emos in a circle room so they have no corner to cry in.
"Ugh. It's a hipster." Says the emo girl.

"I listened to that band before I was cool." Replies the hipster girl.
