I use magic loop for my toe-up socks, but I get tired of moving the marker (the height of laziness, right?). I can use the tails to tell where I am, but as the sock gets longer, I'll get tired of turning the toe inside out to see where the sock #1 tail is (especially after I stuff the ball of yarn into the toe). So I used a darning needle and pulled that first tail through to the right side, about an inch up the side of the toe. That inch on the WS will make it easy to grab the tail and pull it back through to the WS when the socks are finished and I want to weave in any tails. Here are a couple of pics in case it's hard to visualize. (The yarn is curly because it's recycled from a thrift-store sweater.)
