What is the difference between a hippie and a hipster or are they the same thing? If they are not the same thing do they have anything in common? Are hipsters peaceloving treehuggers too? I'm writing a book and am trying to get an unberstadning of certain labels in order to properly categorize some of my characters.

A "hipster" is someone that is "hip" or "with it", that is really up on a certain scene, be it art, music or whatever. They wear the latest styles and use the latest phrases and all that happy crap. Totally different from a hippie.
