It’s official: beards are as trendy as boobs. So much that many men in New York’s hipster-filled neighbourhoods of Williamsburg, Park Slope, and Bushwick, are coughing up as much as $7,000 to get a thicker and manlier coat of facial hair. This was recently discovered by website DNA Info, when they interviewed a few plastic surgeons. Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, a Midtown East surgeon, said that facial hair transplants are on the rise especially now that it’s fashionable. In fact, he averages three beard implants a week, compared to only a handful a year a few years ago.
Nobody, absolutely nobody, is immune to the power of cats. Our feline overlords hold such authority, they don’t just make nerd glasses ironic, they make them iconic. Guess there’s a reason why people with swag get upgraded to being labelled as cool cats.

Each hipster section includes interests, favorite eats and drinks, plus a […]
Hope Gangloff takes photos of her (hipper than hip) friends and turns them into portraits with an edgy likeness to their kicky personas. Gangloff sticks to a limited palette of colours that sheds art on everyday scenarios. Her work has an interesting storytelling quality that’s big on attitude and honest (no bullshit) human emotion.
We’ve had enough of hipsters and zombies, thank you very much. But shoot-’em-up arcade action game Hipster Zombies from Sharkbomb Studios comes with a pretty good dose of hipster-related humor. The premise is that hipsters have turned into zombies and you, hoodie-clad one who’s keeping it real, must fight back.
Dining out? Thanks to Fast CoCreate, we now know that Yelp has a handy map function that displays hot spots when you select ‘hipster’ as a search term for its reviews. All the 14 cities — which includes New York, London and Paris — covered by Yelp with this nifty feature seem to have pretty […]
Haha, this is brilliant. Paris-based photographer Léo Caillard cast classical stone sculptures in hipster wear, and we must say these are totally not out of place. Art direction was provided by Raphael Federici.
The Internet has jaded me. I’m not surprised that people take pictures of people who take pictures of food. I am certainly not surprised that there is a Tumblr for these pictures. I am absolutely not surprised that the creator of this Tumblr is calling “food photographers” ‘hipsters’. What I am surprised about is some […]
A cartoonist for many well-known magazines, Peter Arkle has got some witty stuff. His cartoons are simple enough to easily get, but also speak deeply about society and cultural views. When he talks about his art, he says that he likes to mix writing with art in order to “cheat” into some good material. Very […]
Finally, a Tumblr blog dedicated to documenting the fashion of the elderly. But really though, why should the young hipsters get all the attention? These snazzy and stylish senior citizens definitely deserve some recognition.
Want to become a true hipster, but don’t know how? No problem: simply use the Hipster Starter Kit. Designed by Croatian graphic designer, Mihael Miklošić, the kit showcases the stereotypical aspects of what defines a hipster. From thick black-rimmed glasses and mustaches, to a polaroid camera, Miklošić knows how to brand them into a hipster identity. There’s even an instructor’s manual to guide you through the process. All materials were printed in his home workshop using his custom craft paper.
Tattoos and Ray Bans and scarves, oh my! Shutterstock in-house designer Jordan Roland re-imagined the classic film, The Wizard Of Oz, through the oversized lens of the modern hipster. Dorothy shows off her quirky hot-air-balloon tattoo, while the tin man sports a perfectly-curled mustache. Roland does a great job of representing that stereotype you’ve probably never heard of …
Someone had to do it: lay down some house rules that include ‘no talking about annoying hipster topics’. Guess all that chatter about obscure bands finally got to them. You can find this sign proudly displayed at a cafe in Caledonia Street, San Francisco.
This fun infographic is a self-purported ‘cautionary tale’ of how hipsters should be leery of just how swiftly (only six steps!) they can find hippiehood. Funny, we’d have thought it’d be the other way round, with hippies becoming hipsters.
Olympics? What’s that? Hipsters are just going to do their own thing. Which means organising their very own version of the games: the Hipster Olympics. Held in Berlin, the best of hipster subculture gets celebrated with excellent contests incolving horn-rimmed glasses throws, skinny jeans tug-o-war, vinyl record spinning and racing in cloth tote sacks. Bring it on, we say.
