What about a slim hard metal or plastic hairband or elasticated one to help your hair remain neat for work? David Beckham managed to pull it off, you could have them in the same colour as your hair so they blend in.

Scrunchies might look a little unusual on a male, I use terry towel bands/ ponios which are very soft but not the smartest unless you match your hair colour and they are mostly hidden in your waves.
