What size? 2 bulbs? 4 bulbs? 2' or 4'? I'd get the larger size for all -- you can always cut down the number of illuminated bulbs, but you can never boost the light of a small unit except by moving it closer, which creates its own problems.

In general, you still need a fill light (use a 4x4 foamcore held by a c-stand). You also need lighting controls -- those c-stands, scrims. You still need a small back light -- could be a small 2-bulb 2'kino flown into place at the end of a c-stand. You may well want some diffusion for the key kino. You might want some light (1/8) CTO or CTB for the back light, depending on hair color.
