Hook size with braid-safety

Hi all, ever since I have been using braid as a mainline, I have always been using hooks of size 6 at the smallest (almost always size 4) and now, coming into the winter, I would like to scale down to a single 10mm pop up, or pop up particles. For these rigs, I think it would be wise to go for size 8 for the 10mm pop ups, and size 8 or 10 for the small particles in order to balance hook-bait size. My question is, would it be safe to scale down hooks that small whilst using braid, would I begin to experience hook pulls and damage to the mouth of the fish from the hook being pulled around?
