Gina’s Review: Talia Mono by Ellen Wille, Color: Light Bernstein Rooted (12.19.27)

Hey y’all! This is Gina and today I am sharing with you Talia Mono by Ellen Wille in the color Light Bernstein Rooted.

Did you know that you can request a review to be done in a specific wig and/or color? Heather and her team has worked so hard putting out tons (and tons and tons) of reviews and color spotlights. While she said she can’t put up a review in every color of every single wig, we can try and show you as many wigs and hair pieces as possibles. This helps SOOOOOO much when buying hair online, right? I’ve been there. I’ve looked up and down Youtube before making my purchases because these wigs aren’t cheap y’all! These pieces are investment pieces that help build up our self confidence. Anywho…if there’s a wig or color out there that you haven’t seen many reviews in (or at all) just send us a quick note to . We might not be able to get to it right away, but we will try our best! 🙂




This was honestly my first Ellen Wille order so I was so excited to unbox Talia.






For someone that has biohair, a fishnet wig liner is recommended to contain the hair. Under my wig liner, I wear a wig grip for added security.


I have biohair and normally wear a Jon Renau topper when I’m out and about. If you also have biohair, I HIGHLY recommend shaving the nape of your neck with a short style like Talia Mono. It’s right up there with removing the label. If you are going for a natural look, long nape biohair that escapes your wig liner and a tag that is showing is dead giveaway you are wearing a wig.





One of the reasons I’ve never purchased an Ellen Wille wig before is because this brand is known for fitting petite average. I am most comfortable in average-large fitting wigs. I thought Talia Mono fit pretty comfortable and even went on and off of my 22″ canvas head quite easily. One of the main factors I think makes this wig fits is because of the open wefts. If this were hand tied, I can just imagine how easily it would pop off my head. That being said, I would add pressure clips to this wig just for the added security. 🙂

I hope you guys enjoyed this review. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a lovely day!

    Hi Gina!
    I love your natural brunette color, but this blonde is beautiful on you too! Thanks for sharing! As a natural brunette, I debate back and forth which I prefer on myself. It’s nice to see another brunette pull off this color so well!

      Thank you Janel! I think you would really like this color! And the root is awesome for dark natural brunettes.

      Thank you Kathleen! Oh gosh, I forgot about describe the root. Thank you for pointing that out to me. I’ll make note of that for future reviews, and edited this post to add the root photo. 🙂

      I think the root is a neutral #4.

      Hope all is well with you Kathleen!

    You are such a wonderful brunette! And this shade of blond looks beautiful on you! It looks fantastic on a brunette! I agree, it must be because of the dark root. Glad to read the Ellen Wille feels comfortable to wear! I would like to try a blonde, but I am afraid to order an Ellen Willie because my head circumference is 22 1/2. What would be a comparable colour on a Jon Renau? Is there one similar to Bernstein Rooted? Thanks for the beautiful pictures!

      Hi there Anne! Thank you for your sweet comment! Light Bernstein is AMAZING!

      Unfortunately, there is that risk there with how comfortable an Ellen Wille will fit. I found Talia to be ok but definitely not Casino More.

      I would say that the color would be similar (not exact) to Jon Renau’s Walnut Syrup (FS10/16). The highlighting in Mocha Gold is much more blended!

      I hope this helps. Please let us know in the CCHD if you have any questions. 🙂
