Haitian-Creole term or phrase: "tchas"
"tchas" is a Creole term describing the back of men's head after a cut in general.

This is for the purpose of a linguistic comparative study. I would appeciate it if you could help me find an equivalent in German.
Thanks for helping.

Nacken(schnitt)
Explanation:

*Nacken* veut dire en principe *nuque*, Sandra; mais par ex. chez le coiffeur il est tout à fait possible d\'entendre:
\"Und wie machen wir den Nacken?\" c.à.d. quelle coupe pour la nuque.
Ce qui représenterait l\'équivalen du créole.
Pour préciser - dans un contexte plus général - Nackenschnitt la coupe pour la nuque.

agree  Сергей Лузан: Ja, ganz genau. Die Frage sehe ich schon zum dritten mal, aber den Ausgangspunkt wurde mir von der deutschen Sprache gegeben (dasselbe Wort im Spanisch und Englisch monolingual). Leider weiß ich den genauen Begriff auf dem Russischen nicht, nur Umgangs-.
