A person with cultivated eccentricities which are treated very seriously yet at the same time as an inside joke. These traits or markings are odd enough to look out of place, yet tame enough to be shrugged off as a matter of taste. They may include choice of facial hair, clothes, food and drink preference, fashion accessories, vehicles, and listening music. Hipsters are particularly fond of listening to sub-mediocre bands whose songs have sweet and melancholic lyrics, in order to affirm their out-of-the-mainstream eccentricity.
She likes wearing shirts with cute animals that brutally murder one another, and whenever someone mentions bacon she raves about it. What a hipster.

This is urban dictionary, so the blunt definition of a hipster is a loser. Yet another group of clones who pride themselves on non-conformism, much like emo and scene kids. These people are snobs who normally talk with an upward inflection. Although they do have a knack with obscure music and literature, the fact remains that the only reason they know about these things is out of conformity. They dress, talk and believe the same way. Agnostic spirituality or Atheism and liberalism are mandatory. Always very thin, I have not once seen a fat or athletic hipster. Very open minded, indeed. Spineless cowards, they will not raise a fist to save their girlfriend from a rapist; and if they did they would be mutilated for it. Worthless intellectual snobs with no real depth or substance. Nothing but a lot of hot air and big words.
I don't conform. I fight against the pangs of mainstream culture by joining another one. I and my friends are intellectually diverse, believing in basically the same things, rejecting clone-wear, by dressing the same and pretending to be classy snobs while the real classy snobs laugh at us from their BMW's and Porches, all 120 lbs of us. I'm a hipster.

An unoriginal, trend driven individual who 99% of the time mistakes irony for coincidence. They ride bikes, have beards, put pictures of their food on instagram, and wear and do things "ironically".
The hipster at the whiskey bar thought it was "ironic" that the cardiologist died of a heart attack. (that is a coincidence)

One who strives to do anything that isn't considered Mainstream solely to look different and hip. They usually drive a Scion or a hatchback. They still wear skinny jeans that they bought when they were emo. They usually work at Starbucks, any burrito place or American Apparel. They only watch documentaries or movies that are played on Sundance. They will listen to any music that isn't played on the radio. They tend to vote democrat for three reasons. One, they view Republicans as older people and democrats as the younger ones. Two, President Obama isn't white or old. Three, John Stewart is a liberal.
Generic College Student: Hey man what are majoring in?

Hipster: Liberal Arts

Generic College Student: You do realize that the magazine/newspaper industry is dying, right?

Hipster: No I want to be a blogger. What are you a business major?

Generic College Student: Yes.

Hipster: Pssh, conformist. Let me guess you are a Republican?

Generic College Student: You're an idiot. Let me know if you need a job later.

Someone who doesn't fit any other social group. Listens to indie music. Dresses in a style kindly described as "oddly".
just look at this Pandora profile....THAT is a hipster or young soon-o-be-hipster, if I've ever seen one:
"Hey! I'll just talk about music here, throwing in little tidbits about me. I really like "Indie" (though such differing styles should never be crushed into one genre) bands and things nobody's(at school, anyhow) heard of, so I'm glad Pandora has them. I really like irony, and I would think it amazing if the lyrics of a song reflect effort of intelligence spent on them, rather than the cookie cutter mainstream things out there today.EVen though I'm just 14, I despise the direction music is headed, both lyrically and instrumentally. Where are we, in 1984? Music making machines might have worked in George Orwell's world, but that's why Big Brother would have killed me. On a related note, I was recently distraught to discover that Indie FM in soCal has been replaced by Spanish station. How could they get rid of such a groovy station?

When not, I like reading, writing, debating, having intellectual conversation, knitting, creating theories, talking to cats with different opinions than my own, and riding my totally amazing bike (vintage schwinn with LOOOONG fenders!!!). By the way, despite comments made by some drones I know, I am NOT a hipster. I refuse to submit to an group. WHy limit yourself? (I hang out with self identified nerd, dorks, activists, emos, punks, hipsters, geeks, band people, and drama geeks. However, I hate social branding, just can't convince my ragtag band of amigos.)"
Notice how the girl edits her pandora profile.... she also describes herself as a "student/novelist/poet/blogger"

Look at the station, it's called "Groovy Tunes for Tubular Cats"....seriously?

I would tell you what hipster means, but it's pretty obscure.
Person 1: So, what's a hipster?

Hipster: I would tell you, but you probably don't know them.

“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).

You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.
Person 1: Lol, that guy is such a hipster! Let's make fun of him and make ourselves look cool! Aren't I so funny guys!!

Person 1:...Guys?

Person 2: Your ignorance is sickening. Just leave.
