What is a hipster? I am compiling some research for a project i'm putting together and am really interested in what people believe hipsters are. I have always thought of hipsters as pinch rolled jeans, thick rimmed glasses, bit knits and Nike blazers but the more that I look into this topic the more I find people have completely different opinions. Is it the geek chic look or is it more of an alternatively scene image that triggers the word hipster in your head?

Hipster is such an American term. Despite it being posted to death on Fuk, I thought that 'Being a Dickhead's Cool' YouTube thing was well observed dig on the Shoreditch scene.

At the moment, a scruffy "beard" (or any untrimmed mass of facial hair)
