Someone whose fear of being labeled a conformist and obsession with being different closely parallels the fear of being labeled different and obsession with being mainstream of the person whom the hipster so vehemently despises.
A hipster will read this, realize it's true, and love it because it's ironic.

\hip-stur\n. One who possesses tastes, social attitudes, and opinions deemed cool by the cool. (Note: it is no longer recommended that one use the term "cool"; a Hipster would instead say "deck.") The Hipster walks among the masses in daily life but is not a part of them and shuns or reduces to kitsch anything held dear by the mainstream. A Hipster ideally possesses no more than 2% body fat.

-The Hipster Handbook, Robert Lanham
Typically a Hipster can be identified by vintage or thrift-store bougt clothing, a taste for obscure or underground music, a penchant for irony and an elitist attitude.

a male or female that feels all attention should be directed at him/her. He wears ridiculous clothing that screams "Look at me!" The males often hit on girls that have boyfriends relentlessly until they get their way. In other words, hipsters are girlfriend stealers. They also listen to alternative music. Only. They are perhaps the most closed-minded beings on the face of the earth. When standing in a group they are usually the most obnoxious and loud ones there. Often, a hipster plays a musical instrument. But they only play the songs that are alternative (naturally). If a song is released by their favorite band and becomes popular, they refuse to listen to it because everyone else is. The common word for a song like this is mainstream. An antonym for mainstream is underground.
That guy is such a hipster, he gelled his hair to look like a member of his favorite alternative band.

Usually a hipster is smart but also has a sassy attitude

Hipsters are modern and pop like they are simply just UNIQUE

The word "hipster" continuously evolves and never finitely characterizes a group of people. Many people often confuse bums, freaks, and poseurs as "hipsters," but that is because bums, freaks, and poseurs insinuate themselves as hipsters through fashion. Modern hipsters, nonetheless, are more active in creative pursuits than they are in consumption. Hipsters also value education and minimal debts. That is why being a hipster is more about what you do for work. A hipster typically works a highly specialized job that requires extensive training, education, or the auto-didactic ability to figure it out, but the work is not necessarily about getting rich. Hipster work does not include gig-based work through apps (ex, Uber, Lyft), food-related work, baristas, gurus, writing reviews, or work in traditional talents such as comedy, music, theater, or sports because each of those fields, generally, are not ways to make a living. Some examples of hipster work include: computer programmers, coders, info-tech specialists, audio engineers, web designers/bloggers, cinematographers, photographers, production crews for films or shows (TV or web), digital journalists, radio broadcasters, credentialed teachers, professors, and public defenders..
Being a modern hipster is not based on fashion, consumption of cool new things, following trends, being retro, or being the "first" to do something because those characteristics can be ascribed to the identities of poseurs, bums, or freaks. Being a modern hipster is about doing highly specialized work.

An individual who has shoved their head so far up their ass they've found a way to make themselves more of a fagot than emo kids. They can't dress like a half-way descent human being, can't talk without making themselves seem like a self righteous douche bag, can't play more than two chords on a guitar and most certainly cant do art. Doesn't matter who you are, if you think you can deem the title "hipster" you'll find yourself shitting where you eat.
Joe: What's that kids problem?

Ben: He's a hipster.

Joe: Just for that I'm going to kick his ass side ways.

Ben: Have fun.!
