Aihara Utau (藍原歌う Aihara Utau) is the leader of the Cures in Idol Star Pretty Cure♪. She is a bright and friendly girl who loves to sing. She can be a bit of a scatterbrain, but she is very honest and is very kind. She is quite fond of saying This is fun! (これは楽しいです！Kore wa tanoshīdesu!). At the start of the series, she is a newly-transferred student at Yumesaki Academy.
Utau's Pretty Cure alter ego is Cure Harmony (キュアハーモニー Kyua Hāmonī), the Melody of Love whose theme colour is pink. Her favourite brand is Sparkle Angel.
As a civilian, Utau has magenta hair with straight bangs, and has some of her hair tied up into a ponytail, while the rest is left hanging past her shoulders. She also has purple eyes. She wears a white shirt with black tights, and a pink cardigan. She also wears black slip-on shoes. In the summer, she wears a pink tank-top with pale pink tulle around the bottom, and over it is a black denim jacket with a knot at the stomach. The cuff and collar is lighter than the jacket, and it has several tiny pink heart-shaped buttons. Her skirt is pink with pale pink tulle around the bottom and middle, along with a single thin piece of it on the hips from the waist band to mid-skirt. Her shoes are cork edge sandals with pink colouring where the foot rests to match the heel flap and foot strap. On the strap is a single piece of pale pink lace and black string, while attached to the heel flap is a long pink ribbon that ties mid-way up the leg.
As Cure Harmony, her hair grows longer, and turns bright pink. She wears a thin pink headband with a piece of pink and white material that has four pearls in the centre, and has silver earrings with light pink centers. She wears a pale pink blouse worn underneath a pink vest that has dark pink lining and is worn shut, and has a red bow with the Idol Star insignia in it. She wears a pink, plaid-like ruffled skirt which almost resembles a tutu, and the under layer is very frilly and pale pink. Her shoes are small pink heels, and they are worn with socks that have frilled garter-like segments around the ankles. Her arm protectors are short with dark pink ribbons on the wrists, and her Idol Bracelet is on her right wrist.
Utau is a 13-year-old girl in her first year at Yumesaki Academy. She is kind and loves to help out a friend in need, and is honest and loves music. She has dreamed of becoming an idol ever since she was a child. Her favourite type of Star Cards are "Sparkle Angel". She also loves to have fun and can be quite clumsy.
On stage and as a Cure, she is a completely different person. She is more serious, and is bent on getting the job done. She is also more graceful, and never lets anything distract her. She will keep fighting or singing until her task is completed.
Becoming Cure Harmony
Utau moves to Yumesaki Academy and is admiring her dorm room, when a girl jumps down from the top bunk, and Utau is excited to see that her roommate is her childhood friend, Mizuno Asami! After unpacking, Utau and Asami decide to explore the school, and along the way, they encounter Amaterasu Kiyomi, a first-year aspiring to become a dancer, and Murasaki Kotone, the popular model. Later, three cards tumble out of Utau's diary, and Utau soon meets a fairy named Cadence. Cadence explains that since Utau found the basic Star Cards that belong to Cure Harmony, Utau is to become a legendary warrior known as a Pretty Cure! However, Asami is turned into a Namida by Antaeus, and so Utau, by letting out her feelings, transforms into Cure Harmony, the Melody of Love!
In Episode 6, Utau was called to the headmistress' office, where she meets Fukushima Tsubasa, the school's headmistress. Tsubasa proposes the idea of Utau's first concert, and an excited Utau agrees. Tsubasa also explained that she would take care of everything, and all Utau had to do was to choose a song and practice it. At the concert, Tsubasa handed Utau the Aurora Dream Dress, and revealed herself as the Top Designer of Sparkle Angel. Just then, Sisyphus attacked with the hopes of capturing Tsubasa, but the Cures transformed and saved her. Finally, the concert started, and Utau performed her character song, "Idol's Prayer☆".

"Hearts represent the melody of love! Magically musical, Cure Harmony!"
Hāto wa ai no merodi o hyōgen! Mahō no ongaku, Kyua Hāmonī!
Cure Harmony (キュアハーモニー Kyua Hāmonī) is the alter Pretty Cure ego of Aihara Utau. Like her teammates, Cure Harmony has the power of music, but she also has the power over crystals. Her voice is very beautiful and powerful, which can give her enemies headaches. Unlike her teammates, she can run very fast and can also jump very high. Her basic attack is Harmony Hurricane.
Utau holds up her transformation Star Cards, and she inserts them into the Idol Bracelet. She then shouts out "Pretty Cure, Live Start!", and turns the rainbow dial on the Idol Bracelet, which begins the transformation. Utau's hair grows longer and changes colour, and she runs into three large cards, and her shirt, skirt and shoes appear. She holds her arms out, and ribbons appear on her arm protectors. She taps her feet together, which causes frill garter-like segments to appear on her socks. She taps her chest, which causes a red bow with the emblem on it to appear. She then strikes a pose before flying down from the sky and introducing herself.
