Could you help me ? I need for a deal breaker for hair color?

Hello,. I've been said few years ago that I was a light summer (skin and hair) but that my eyes were winter (light brown). I have some kind of porcelain skin with obvious blue undertone around eyes (appears in the light due to the transparency of my skin ...) . Today I can not find what are my colors except off white which is the only color that matches really my overall coloring, and above all, I have to dye my hair since I got greyed/white haired (but it's not OK because they are not harmoniously placed on my head) and I can not find the color that would suit me since my natural hair color seems impossible for hairdressers to create (my hair are washed out to quickly and turn golden which makes me look green) . Thanks for your help ! I can not find where best hair colors are determined relatively to the season. I have tried: Keep my natural hair color (hairdressers can not manage it, I'm always too dark).
