Noun. One who attempts to project originality, intelligence and coolness by opting for ostensibly poor quality, care and coordination of clothing and goods; exerts significant effort maintaining outdated, unattractive mode of dress and hairstyle; feigns or forces personal interest in certain types of music, art and activity with the primarily social intent of promoting the illusion of eccentricity; yet lacks true creative skill, communicative eloquence, stylistic depth, or independently cultivated thought. Common in large and mid-size American urban centers and near universities, typically near gentrification boundaries. Demographically mostly white, middle class, age 20-30, non-professional. (See Silver Lake - Los Angeles; Manhattan/Brooklyn - New York, Austin, San Francisco, Chicago)
Look kids, that hipster girl is wearing Tootsie glasses, bangs, and a mid-thigh sweater from the 1980's, and she's riding a one-speed bike with two flat tires - isn't she interesting?

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.

That guy looks like he is a retarded kid who was allowed to dress himself for the first time. Hipster.

People between the ages of 18 and 30 who claim to reject mainstream culture. They like to say that they possess creativity, intelligence, and witty banter...but in all reality, they are all cynical assholes who refuse to shower and like to feed on the souls of the innocent. When they aren't being total tools or having butt sex with each other, they like to pretend that they are God's gift to creation. Their humor resembles that of a dead horse, and they listen to music that makes even a deaf man want to kill himself. They wear jeans that an infant would have a hard time fitting into, and sweaters that someone's deceased grandmother gave to the salvation army. Every hipster comes fully loaded with an $800 camera that (obviously) makes them a professional photographer. Instead of playing outside during their youth, they liked to stay inside and listen to their parents old records. When they aren't riding around on their bicycles, they are usually browsing an antique store spending the money their upper middle class parents gave them, because getting a job is too mainstream. Although they claim to be nonconformist, you will only find them decked out in the latest edition of everything Apple. They tend to be rude, selfish, and have a smug sense of superiority. What once was hip and indie in the 80's has been completely ruined by the new age hipsters that lank the streets of society today. Saying you're a hipster today is like saying you're an ignorant douche bag bastard.
Oh my, that woman's thong is sticking out of her extremely tight pants! Never mind, it's just Johnny the hipster again.

Guys: Physically weak, un-masculine wimps that wear tight girl-jeans and talk about having sex very loudly. Worse than indies. Long, dyed hair under trucker hat. Wannabe intellectuals; think reading the paper once in a while makes them intelligent.
Girls: Hard to tell apart form soft-core punk chicks; usually tattooed, and clothed similarly to the guys.
See: Bus stops on Capital Hill in Seattle are 30%-50% hipster populated

A dedicated fan of "The Tragically Hip", the best band in the whole wide world.

Douche who misunderstands the concept of irony. Often self-righteous, and thinks he/she are cooler than and have a special knowledge above everyone else. Drink PBR for reasons other than the taste. Don't realize that when the counter culture became the main stream culture (in the 60s), being part of the counter culture makes them part of mainstream culture.
"You wouldn't understand, it's a hipster thing."
"Oh no, I understand. You're a heterofag that thinks they're better than anyone who doesn't share your exact beliefs."
