Decent dye jobs don't have to look natural to be attractive, they do have to not look harsh or unrealistic or just not suit you even from a distance. My mother is in her late sixties and has dyed for years - canopy has a lot of white/ grey, natural is dark brown.

The dye has been both DIY and salon has always been decent, always lighter than the natural currently with high and lowlights, for many years she has aimed to tint or tone her greys not totally cover them. It's akin to what a quality make up job does, her but better.

That is not to imply everyone needs to be improved with with greys/ whites, some people it just suits and they look amazing. If I had my aunt's full head white I'd indulge my passion for pastels, because it's fun not because I think her natural hair is anything but beautiful.
