After buying my new equipment I have to make do with the lighting I have for now. So my question is this. Can I use a 200w video light as a hair light and softbox for a main light and get good results ? I will have to make a mount for the light and mount it on a wall over head so I wanted to get feed back before I waist time making the mount.

The first thing that comes to mind is color balance... you should make tests to see if the color balance of the video light is the same as what you're using with your other lights. If you mix color temperatures you're liable to have results that are hard to correct properly.

(BTW, you waste time... not "waist time". )

Yes, not only can you get good results....you can get GREAT results using a video light as a hair light..or a rim light/backlight...etc.
And yes the color balance will be different...use that fact to your advantage.
The photo below (Playmate Audra Lynn) was taken with an old video light, and a simple (and cheap) halogen lamp and a studio strobe as the main light...though the "main" light in this case was actually used to fill her from the front.
There's 3 different sources of light here and all of them have a different color temperature.
Don't be afraid to break those rules!
