To reconize a hipster is not hard, their hair can only be described as "complicated". To get this effect its at least 2 weeks not washing. They are usaly decked out in American Apparel or Urban Outfitters. Weird, weird, weird personalitys and humouritys. No matter where a hipster is from, they will automaticly feel at home in a big busy city (NYC, Toronto) Hipsters usaly live off there mommy and daddys money because have a job is so main stream.
To veiw hipsters in their natural habitats head towards a meuseam, sketchy parts of citys, coffee shops, smoking allowed restrants.
Ps. If you happen to want a picture of the Hipsters in action, expect them to give a not smiling, almost scared looking face with a kissy face but not quite.
"That film and those short stories were so comical! I'm going to email this link to 500 of my closest acquaintances, head up to some thrift shops, grab a chai and then play kickball in a headband and short-shorts..Ugh i fcuking hate how everyone thinks im a hipster! *sweeps bangs to side dramatically and takes a short drag on a cig*"

Someone who uses an unnecessarily large academic vocabulary to talk about the most everyday occurrences such as a movie they've just seen or a piece of art they saw at some indy art gallery.

Someone who claims not to be a hipster.

Someone who, if you have the misfortune to talk to, you will realize has the concepts of "wittiness" and "stupidity" confused.

Someone who overuses the words "ironic" and "brilliant" and also has a tendency to throw in some French. (A whole semester of college French and suddenly they're bilingual)
Oh that girl I just talked to sounded so smart. I thought she was an academic while she was talking to me, but when she was finished talking I realized that she was just describing the sandwich she had for lunch.

Look at that guy over there. Look at those thick horn rimmed glasses. I bet you he likes to use big words to talk about the new hipster bar that he's found in Silverlake or Echo Park.

Always have the facial expression of contemplating things.
Person: What do you think of this
Hipster: (Contemplates and judges)

A pretentious person who thinks s/he is cultured and often superior to others simply because s/he listens to indie music, watches art films, and drinks overly expensive coffee at coffee houses that are often crowded with other hipsters. Most often they possess an economically worthless degree in something like philosophy, liberal arts, or history that they earned at a junior college or satellite university. They waste most of their disposable income on albums, cigarettes, and/or going to crappy shows. They often follow issues surrounding liberal topics and are typically very liberal themselves, often to the point of being very narrow-minded (though they think they're the most open-minded people). They delude themselves to the point of thinking they're more refined than everyone else when they're really just pseudo-intellectuals who need to stop wearing used clothing and take showers more often.
That hipster in my creative writing class always criticizes my poems on technology. That $6 coffee he gets every morning must be rotting his brain.

A "hipster" is what "hipsters" call other "hipsters" to detract attention away from their own "hipsterness." A "hipster" was once the word du jour for cool and hip people, but now that its uncool and unhip to be hip and cool, it's what unhip and uncool hip cool people call other hip cool people so that we might not be confused with hip cool people. Cause that would be unhip. Dig?

n. adj. from the English "hip" meaning too cool for public school. Anyone beneath the age of 40 who gives a shit about Brian Eno, David Bowie, and Jorge Luis Borges. Typically majors in English, Visual Arts, or Film Studies. Wouldn't be caught dead wearing any shoe other than Vans or Chuck Taylors. Considers local bands no one's ever heard of more important than food and shelter. Considers moving from the suburbs to a former ghetto a justified version of "white flight". Can be seen in abundance in Portland, Oregon and Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and to a lesser extent Austin, Texas and Athens, Georgia.
I used to like The Flaming Lips, but my HIPSTER friend suggested that Cat Power was more my speed.
