Ever wanted to be like those teen hipster girls on Tumblr with their dyed hair and Instagrammed photos? With just a couple of tweaks to your wardrobe and Tumblr layout, you’ll be indistinguishable from them in weeks. Here’s your guide to becoming a hipster just like the girls you see on Tumblr.
Observe. If you know next to nothing about Tumblr hipsters, you're going to need some inspiration. Follow, reblog, like, and even print out pictures of people who look the way you want to look, or have blogs you're trying to imitate. Take screenshots and set your desktop background to be a rotating display of these images. You might even want to have a special notebook where you keep these pictures and make notes on what you like/don't like, how you'd wear certain pieces,etc.
Go through your wardrobe. Pick out clothing you think you can work with and try to arrange it in combinations that work for your personal style. If you don't think you can work with something in your closet, set it to the side. Remember: even majorly out-of-date clothing can be saved with a pair of scissors and a bit of imagination.
Go shopping! Visit stores like Forever 21, where you can stock up on a ton of new, hipster-esque clothes without spending too much money. Thrift stores are another great option! Again, don't forget that everything can be modified. So even if you think that something you're buying isn't that cute, or looks too tight or too long or too ruffly for you, think of the possibilities before disregarding it completely.
You'll want lots of accessories such as crucifix necklaces, rings, and bracelets. String bracelets and anklets are also very popular. Forehead headbands with little flowers and beads can look nice, but only if you have relatively tame hair.
Do your hair in the style of a Tumblr hipster. The most popular style is long with beachy waves, but pixie cuts, bangs, and very curly hair are also common. If you're coveting a particular hairstyle that you don't have the right quantity of hair to do, consider getting a haircut or extensions. Try straightening, curling, braiding, whatever you want to try to create your own unique hipster style--when you get it right, you'll definitely know.
Wear makeup. The casual, everyday Tumblr hipster look is little foundation with eyeshadow in a natural tone, plus mascara and eyeliner and nude lips. For parties or a more formal look you can use virtually any brightly colored eyeshadow. Then put on your eyeliner a little thicker than usual and add light pencil eyeliner along the waterline in black. Finish off your special occasion Tumblr hipster look with coral or bright red lips.
