The hippies of the 2000's. They listen to "undiscovered" bands, wear retro clothes from thrift stores, and only hang around other hipsters. They try to look as though they don't have a lot of money, while still looking trendy. They usually smoke a lot of weed, and use various other drugs. They don't wear any brand name items, or visit at any chain stores. They are sometimes vegetarian or vegan. They are very into "artsy" things. They may be a painter or musician, or a dancer, or have a low-paying job. They try to go for the "starving artist" look. A lot of times hipsters will actually come from wealthy families. They may have gauges, and do not typically wear makeup of any kind. They try to be as "natural" and "organic" as they can. They buy their groceries from either Whole Foods, or Trader Joe's. They are usually very liberal. They often practice Buddhism, or try to be "zen." They also often protest against large corporations, or chemical companies, because "they love the environment." Hipsters try very hard to be hipsters, but if you tell them that they are a hipster, they will deny it, because to them it is a compliment, not a stereotype. They range between 15-30 years old. They are very strongly opposed to "conforming," which to them is anything that anyone else might have, do, or say.
Person: Hey, check out my new phone!
Hipster: I don't approve of technology, it's not natural. You're such a conformist. I'm just gonna go hang out with my other natural friends.
