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...

Someone who mimics the incoming trends, and immediately ditches anything that might have been cool two minutes ago.
Hipster is the new Bum on the Street look, includes k-mart shoes, moccasins,cardigans,and anything else you can find at a thrift shop. Mob top haircuts. Claims to listen to 80's new wave or indie bands. And Extremely pretentious with their music taste.

with more gaudy accessories than a williamsburg thrift store, this gal uses her daddy's credit card to stay hip! she is an art school dropout and has no intention of furthering her education. rather, she aspires to become a hairdresser one day; beauty school, here she comes! please note: this will not actually happen.

her taste in music taste changes based upon what's being spun at whatever club is trendy that week. dance music is her absolute fave, but her friends have no idea about her checkered past.

once a ska queen, she now works as hard as she can to preserve her fashionable hipster image by mimicking the incoming trends, and immediately ditches anything that might have been cool two minutes ago. this behavior prevents her from forming any individual identity whatsoever.

she aspires to work in the fashion industry, and she will- folding clothes at old navy for the rest of her life.

Hipsters can be easily identified by their excessively portrayed personalities and attitudes of being "too cool for life," as well as their belief that they are "cooler" than others, all of whom in their eyes who follow trends/the mainstream (which is somehow not the same as hipsters following the hipster trend). 97% of all hipsters are hypocrites.

Hipsterism is highly contagious and can quickly spread to others if there is a high volume of hipsters present. Thus, if you live in an area with a high density of hipsters, the stores, restaurants, etc. will tend to reflect their tastes/lifestyle. Interestingly, despite being the trendiest of trends, neighborhoods that have suffered from hipsterism have generally increased in property value.

Hipsters frequently dress in the same general manner, despite describing that manner has being unique/individual. This usually includes vintage clothing, clothing from thrift stores, ironic clothing, plaid, tight pants, metro-sexual clothing, clothing meant to appear ragged/poor (despite it's wearer being middle to upper-middle class and receiving all their money from wealthy parents in the form of an allowance, rather than working/living in reality), etc. They may also wear unnecessary accessories such as scarves during the summer, sunglasses indoors, etc.

Hipsters are also associated with indie music, contemporary art, etc. Unfortunately, their attempts to turn away from the mainstream and "kitsch" to a more bohemian-like lifestyle has ruined much of what they now claim as theirs (ie: indie music is now dominated by a scene and has little to do with the actual music, contemporary art is plagued with over dramatic plays and poor work/weak conceptual ideas, coffee shop atmospheres are ruined by their judgmental attitude towards all non-hipsters, etc.) In essence, the things they helped to build have lost all value and meaning, but that is appropriate to the apathetic, lack of originality that is possessed by all hipsters.

Knowing the truth about what they are, most hipsters will deny that they are a hipster. However, it should be noted, there are some people who fit the hipster description and are legitimate in their interests, activities, and lifestyle, but this is extremely rare.

Despite their likely denials of being a hipster, and a belief in rugged individuality (which has turned into a conformity apart from "mainstream conformity"), to be a hipster, one must win the approval of other hipsters. Thus, it is impossible for a naturally "non-coo" person to ever achieve hipster status. This of course, is yet another contradiction. Over all, hipsters lead a judgmental, elitist lifestyle, as aforementioned, with a strong conviction in the belief that they are "cooler than life."

For some reason, hipsters like Pabst Blue Ribbon, possibly one of the worst, most watered-down beers available... Apparently it's cool to have bad taste, an important detail to remember for any aspiring hipster.

If one is at all unsure of whether a person is in fact a hipster, the yuppie/douche test never fails. If the person comes across in any way as a pretentious, hypocritical, yuppie douche, they are probably a hipster.
An example of where to find hipsters:

Wicker Park/Bucktown, Chicago

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.
