Is the hotspot distracting? Should I fix it in Photoshop? Any other comments you could make about my lighting?

Not so much a hotspot but her face looks a bit soft and over processed. Looks like your focus was on her shoulder.

The hotspot on her hair doesn't bother me.

The skin tone on the face is considerably brighter than that of her ears, throat, and chest.

The reflections in her eyes give a bit of a cat-eye effect on the pupils.

Your biggest problem is that you missed focus

i may be wrong, but it looks like there's blur added to the face from the look of the corner of the mouth, and the end of the eye brow. The skin tone could be a bit warmer and a bit darker, but i don't know what she looked like in real life. The eyes are really bright, and the left one isn't in focus. Again, i could be wrong (can't zoom in), but the eye liner looks smudged, is that from PP or was it like that in real life?

lighting is a tad flat, definitely think you could dodge and burn the cheekbones a bit more.

Other than that, perhaps if you had taken a step to camera left it would have been good. The back of her head blends into the dark background a bit too well.
