What will be your choice for a basic setup of 2-3 lights that will still be good enough for many faces. I am thinking for a basic umbrella as main light and perhaps a second light as strip light and hair light.

My preference is to use an umbrella as the fill and a softbox or Westcott Apollo for the main. Your 3rd light would be a hair or background light, depending on your setup.

BTW you could do this with one "beauty dish" light and a reflector too.
