a person who refuses to be defined by any set idea, style. one who does not like to be pigeon holed. not to be confused with poser or "scene". Hipsters, although taste is relative, generally have very good taste. they prefer films which appeal to intellect or emotion and avoid cliche, sentiment and the generic. they like bands that most people have never heard of because they actually care about music and seek it out as opposed to just swallowing the first thing which comes to them like the majority or people do. music-wise they will listen to many different stles but nothing which is too self indulgent (incorporating mastabatory guitar solos) or just plain derogatory (gangster rap) but will listen to hip-hop and other types of "black" music, albeit underground. they like to be challenged and therefore read books deemed as difficult or "deep" to the average person. they are also often interested in contemporary art for this same reason. no true hipster will have a definitive style, choosing many different styles and will prefer to look different from one day to the next. their wardrobe will comprise of contemporary off beat cuts and various styles from past decades and adheres to ideas of post-modernity. contrary to popular opinion (which is generally moronic) hipsters do not dress the same but, as mentioned above, change their style continually. the people who are being referred to are the pretentious posers who copy the look but lack the depth. they are always intelligent and creative and can hold good converstion on a wide range of subjects. they are also very fond of sarcasm and irony and often employ them when accosted by an imbecile. hipsters are one of the most tolerant types or people and openly embrace different races and sexualities.

people who do not like hipsters either
a) are getting them confused with people who copy the dress etc but have no personality, as it is all pretense
b) feel inferior because they know jack shit about real, intelligent music, original, thought provoking film and books and daringly different dress sense. basically many people feel ugly when around hipsters which is often true.

they will know about every good band before the spoon-fed masses, and will very likely be the ones who make them popular.

a rare breed of animal usually spotted at the blackcat in DC (not on nights of popular shows, but rather on nights with a no name band that most likely sucks). current hipster trends include (but are not limited to) trucker caps, dyed black hair, zelda haircuts for girls, vintage clothing, black frame glasses, a "hipster" jacket, pair of black chuck taylors, etc.
dude 1: yo, let's go down to the blackcat to see deathcab.
dude 2: no way, i hate them.
dude 1: you liked them last week!! you're getting too hipster. i hate you.
dude 2: don't hate.

A young self-absorbed cunt of the upper-middle class who thinks they're better than everyone else just because of how "unique" or "original" they seem to think they are. They steer away from anything that is considered 'mainstream', in an effort to make themselves and others believe that they are different from the vast majority of society. These cunts are not to be confused with Indie kids, because Hipsters actually TRY (very hard) to be like them. They detest the word Hipster and of course, that being said, hate to be labelled as one. Ironically, a typical hipster hates on other hipsters as they believe their "uniqueness" (or actually "Hipster-ness") has spread, thus fearing that they are now part of the mainstream class. They can be fun to be friends with, but a pain-in-the-neck to be enemies with. All-in-all, a Hipster is a pretentious & snobbish douche-bag.
Normal person: I love Vans, they look pretty cool.
Hipster: Um... I knew about Vans like ages ago.
Normal person: Your point?
Hipster: Vans are so mainstream now. Everyone wears them.
Normal person: Lol, pfft hipster.

Emo Hippie DOUCHEBAGS! They try to give the illusion that they don't care about anything, but in fact care way too much. They are not hard to spot as they all wear the same thing, but will tell you that they are individuals and have a style of their own. They look down on anyone who shows any interest in what they see as mainstream.
That guy at the party who is wearing the same crocodile logo shirt you wore when you were 5, he's a hipster.

everyone who is writing on here seems to have no idea what they are talking about. not all hipsters do what they do and wear what they wear to simply be "different" or "better than everyone". Usually, the clothes they wear are what the "mainstream" in Europe is wearing because this country is so ridiculously behind. Indie music happens to be REALLY GOOD. Maybe, if everyone stopped listening to their godamn rascal flatts and whatever else the shit is they play on the radio, and actually thought for themselves, they would understand.
Dumbass #1:"Oh my god, look at that hipster over there, they think they are so cool because their clothes are DIFFERENT."
Dumbass #2:"I know their music is never played on the radio, so I bet it is just terrible."
Dumbass #1:"C'mon let's go listen to Rascall Flatts and Kelly Clarkson and buy all of our clothes from hollister.

A person who got tired for being white and nerdy so they decided to try real hard and be cool. Most of which are posers that up until 2 years ago had never heard of any of the bands that they are listen.
man 1: Hey didn't we go to high school with that girl?

man 2: Yeah we did.

man 1: Wasn't she one of those girls that thought keith Urban was the best singer ever.

man 2: I think that you are right. Fucking hipster Posers

An unwanted, attention whore in dire need for people to look at him/her. The hipster usually wears tight jeans, vnecks, fedora caps and moccasins. They enjoy hanging out in parking lots and coffee shops and don't actually buy anything, because hipsters are "non comformist" but in reality they're all just washed up poor fucks. They love doing retarded dances that are really idiotic jump moves. They like to listen to non-mainstream music and claim they're better than most people because they listen to music that isn't known because it sucks anyway. Oh, and 99.9% of hipsters are homosexuals.
"Hey dude wanna go to the coffee shop then go to the open mic night and listen to all the Hipster wanna bees sing and laugh at them?"

"Haha, Randy, you read my mind, i love laughing at hipsters.!
