Any experience using speed light as hair light

Hi guys I'm debating to buy another strobe to use as a hair light.

Currently I have four strobes. I usually use two strobes to light the back ground, one for main and fill.

I also have 2x 430ex and a 580ex and was wondering has anybody used this setup with a speedlight as a hair light.

I have 6 wireless Phottix Atlas triggers so I can trigger and meter the speedlight to match.

If anyone has used this setup did you use the speed light directly or make a small cardboard cover around the flash head to direct the light?
