Whose vs. Who’s


I see this mistake often and wanted to share examples to see if they can help clear the confusion.


“Who’s” is a contraction for “who is.”

The girl, who’s (who is) a natural blonde, dyed her hair lime green.


“Whose,” according to the Merriam-Webster, means “of or relating to whom or which especially as possessor or possessors.”

That girl, whose hair was originally blonde, dyed her hair.


I decided to write this mini blog in light of a post I saw sharing Taylor Swift lyrics in which the poster erroneously wrote “whose returning half her weight” instead of “who’s returning half her weigh.” I hope it has helped clarify when to use which word.
