Here is a style that I did for my niece D last week, and later I did a similar design for my daughter N. The front half of the head has two layers of cornrow designs and the back is individual braids that are parted into triangles then braided. On the front layers of cornrows I added a pattern of beads on the ends.

This style has half head cornrows which alternate by size, (one thick braid, one much thinner). For the center parts I did two crisscross cornrows. About four of the cornrow ends were tied together up top into the loop forms and I added the bead hair tie for color. I parted the hair down the middle in back and made two ponytails. The ends of the cornrows (from the front) were added into the back ponytails and tied with a rubber band and hair accessories. This style took about an hour or a little less to create.
