You have too many lights. There are likely 3 lights, maybe 4. Main light is centered above face, probably a medium-ish box. Then either a reflector or active fill below. There is a very mild hair light, and a background light. Fairly straight forward setup.

yep makes sense in line with most of the people guessed.

Would it work to reproduce this setup using a clamshell with softbox up high and umbrella low?

For the hair light what's the best option? can a bare flash do the job?
