    Beards, tattoos, man buns and coffee art galore, the world is slowly being taken over by hipsters.

    But some areas of the world are much more hipster-populous than others, new research has shown. MoveHub has published a list of the top 50 hipster cities in the world, calculated by a ‘Hipster Index.’

    While the majority of the top 20 are US cities, Brighton and Hove has been ranked as the most hipster place in the world.

    ‘Because hipsters have such specific tastes like tattoos and artisan coffee and prefer less bustling city locations, we can map themaround the world quite accurately, which is really interesting,’ said Fred O’Brien, who oversaw the research for MoveHub.

    ‘You would struggle to find any other group that changes cities at the rate that hipsters do – once a city has been chosen as a trendy area, the hipsters bring in all sorts of new independent businesses and this injection of consumers can really transform these cities.’
