Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in the Williamsburg, Wicker Park, and Mission District neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan centers such as New York, Chicago, and San Francisco respectively. Although "hipsterism" is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too "edgy" for the culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The "effortless cool" urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic. Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities. Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off of their parent's trust funds.
Hipsters shun mainstream societal conventions that apply to dating preferences and traditional "rules" of physical attraction. It is part of the hipster central dogma not to be influenced by mainsream advertising and media, which tends to only promote ethnocentric ideals of beauty. The concepts of androgyny and feminism have influenced hipster culture, where hipster men are often as thin as the women they date. The muscular and athletic all-American male ideal is not seen as attractive by confident and culturally-empowered hipster women who instead view them as symbols of male oppression, sexism, and misogyny. Likewise, culturally-vapid sorority-type girls with fake blond hair, overly tanned skin, and "Britney Spears tube-tops" are not seen as attractive by cultured hipster males who instead see them as symbols of female insecurity, low self-esteem, and lack of cultural intelligence and independent thinking. Hipsters are also very racially open-minded, and the greatest number of interracial couples in any urban environment are typically found within the hipster subculture.
Although hipsters are technically conformists within their own subculture, in comparison to the much larger mainstream mass, they are pioneers and leaders of the latest cultural trends and ideals. For example, the surge of jeans made to look old and worn (i.e. "distressed"), that have become prevalent at stores such as The Gap, American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Hollister, were originally paraded by hipsters who shopped in thrift stores years before such clothing items were mass produced and sold to the mainstream consumer. The true irony here is that many of the detractors of hipster culture are in fact unknowingly following a path that hipsters have carved out years before them. This phenomena also applies to music as well, as many bands have become successful and known to mainstream audiences only because hipsters first found and listened to them as early-adopters of new culture. Once certain concepts of fashion and music have reached mainstream audiences, hipsters move on to something new and improved.
Because of the rise of various online photo-blog and social networking sites, insights into urban hipster culture is reaching sheltered suburban audiences at an exponential rate. Cultural "norms" have been deconstructed by hipster culture as a whole. Hipsterism is often dismissed as just an image thing by some, but the culture as a whole is effecting changes in society, leading to feelings of insecurity and resentment in people who are no longer a part of the cultural ruling class. For example, a lot of anti-hipster sentiment evidently comes from culturally-clueless suburban frat boy types who feel that the more sensitive, intelligent, and culturally aware hipster ideal threatens their insecure sense of masculinity. Anti-hipster sentiment often comes from people who simply can't keep up with social change and are envious of those who can.
A conversation outside a hipster bar in downtown NYC:

Frat Boy #1: Dude, are you having any luck picking up chicks in there?

Frat Boy #2: Man...I haven't experienced anything like this before. These chicks are totally rejecting me and going for all these hipster guys in tight pants and shaggy hair instead.

Frat Boy #1: Maybe we should head back up to that bar in Murry Hill where you hooked up with that drunk b*tch from Alpha Sigma Phi last week?

Frat Boy #2: Yeah...I don't think we have what it takes to compete with these guys in here. These hipster chicks won't even give us the time of the day!

A hipster is someone who is generally looked upon from an outside perspective as "Indie", but what often makes hipsters distasteful is that they pride themselves on being indie and also define themselves as such. However, they will never admit this.*

*Consider this an addition to the other, more detailed definitions.
Person #1: Man, you are suck a damn hipster.

Person #2: No I'm not, I just only wear clothes that most people don't wear, only listen to bands that most people haven't heard of, and force myself to be interested in the arts because it's cool but most people don't.

Person #1: ...Wow

a wannabe indie. a hipster is the asshole version of an indie person who cares about fashion and looking "cool".
1: "hey isn't sally indie?"
2: "no, she wishes. she's a stuck up bitch who thinks she's better than everyone else because she likes fashion and photography. im sorry to say, but she's just another hipster."
1: "isn't that similar to an indie person?"
2: "yes, but indie people don't care what they look like to other people, that's why they are independent."

A person, usually in their early to mid twenties, who has what they think is good taste.
They read literature about drug use and depression, listen to music that nobody has heard of and think of themselves as beat poets.
They wear their jeans too tight and carry around moleskine journals. They write (usually shitty) poetry or engage in some kind of (failing) art form. They pretend to value intellect more than most things, but often are extremely stupid.
They complain about society. They like everything that is slightly subversive, like dressing in drag, smoking pot, or grafitti. Anything that requires a real risk, however, is not worth doing. They pretend to care about the environment, but litter. They smoke a lot. They curse a lot. They say they'd like to drop out of college and become a hermit in the mountains, but never do.
They pretend to be alienated, but actually fit in so well it's disgusting.
HIPSTER: What do you think of my new pumas?
NONHIPSTER: I don't care about your pumas.
HIPSTER: That fucking post modern bullshit is exactly what's caused the fucking degradation of the fucking environment. How can you not care, man?
NONHIPSTER: I thought we were talking about shoes!
HIPSTER: If you can't see the fucking connection, I don't see why you're worth talking too.

(n.) An individual/group marked mostly by their cynical, ironic and intellectually elitist ideals(or lack thereof), who claim to denounce corporate interests and the bourgeois lifestyle, yet contradict these sentiments by their own behavior.
hipster mentality vs. lifestyle

'The majority of people are mindless consumers shopping at the mall and dictated by their desire to buy the perfect house, clothing article, car... et al... '

At same time spends a majority of money earned being a dishwasher/bartender/cook at American Apparel/Urban Outfitters/Goodwill, cigarettes, beer, show tickets, and overinflated rent in the part of town that isn't exactly 'safe' but gentrified enough to not worry about being shot in the day.

One of the more striking attributes of most modern hipsters, is that while professing to be experts on music and art, they have no idea who the hell Lester Young was. The fact that "Prez" the tenor saxophonist who accomponied Billie Holiday through her last years was the original Hipster, completely escapes them. Lester would not care because he was a far sharper dresser than any of these skinny little white boys... and on top of that he understood the workings of actual intelligent music. God help them if you ask them who Eric Dolphy was.

(It should be noted that Dolphy was not so much a hipster, but he is a far more obscure and musically complicated Jazz musician from the early 60s. Lester's prime blowing took place in the 40s and 50s, the hight of real hip cats)
hipster- if you want to hear somthing really wild listen to this...
julliard student- I'm sorry, they're just playing three chords on a synth and there's a squeeky mouthed girl cooing over it, I should really be practicing...
hipster- I guess you'll just never understand...
