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

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

Unaji
Explanation:
Unaji is a word for people\'s nape of their head or neck... I know it is a nape and not exactly a back of the head...
If it is a head, it is

Ushiroatama or Kohtohbu

which means a back of the head. These are not especially for men though. They are not especially after the hair cut either...

may be other proz have better offer.

If it is a hair cut it might be

Haegiwa

We don\'t have exact equivalent...I suppose.

Regarding your Email...Yes, You can put Unaji and haegiwa together, but you need a conjunction between them.
It will be

Unaji no haegiwa.

These are both for both genders.

I hope this helps your research...
