Personally I never cut holes in the mask. There is no need to. All the heads that I have added dreads to have been done so with just cyranocylate (however you spell it) super adhesive glue. Put glue in the dread hole and then press your dread against the hole until the glue dries. 2-3 minutes usally. Keep in mind that you can cut the dreads at at slight angle to help them fall more naturally.

Post some pics of your finished result if you can...

Two part epoxy is pretty rigid, but where you would be placing it, I don't think it will hender the "swoosh factor" of your dreads.

It will, however, make it extremely difficult to remove the dreads later if you beed to replace one for any reason. You have the potential of having part of the mask come off on the dread, or part of the dread will remain forever stuck on your mask.
The same can happen with super glue.

I've put dreads in a couple masks, and the cutting an X, and attaching with dap weldwood glue method has worked without fail. Other advice would be to cover the rest of the mask with something so you dont get any glue elsewhere.
