Pfff, the problem with turning over the covers is that washing them turned over means all the hairs rest inside. If it's your own duvet, it's a question of taste, no real difference, if you put the duvet into the cover or roll it over the duvet. "Changed my life!" ? Poor lady, if that is enough to change your life, you must be quite bored. The real challenge is changing a 2,40 x 2,20 m duvet cover on a comfy chair, which is probably full of pillows and a box full sheets, without letting the corners drop on the floor, as the parrot certainly will drop a half eaten orange chunk or grape in that moment. Stick a corner into a far corner, hold from outside, stick the next, hold both in one hand, slide the cover over the other corners, step two steps up on the step-stool (as I'm only 1,65 and did not clean the floor first), hold the upper corners as high and far apart as possible and shake. ;-)

I wash all the duvet covers inside out, and @helga, it sometimes does result in some hairs being trapped, I fix that with a lint roller. I wash them inside out, and with the opening buttoned up or snapped up. If I leave the opening -well, open....then a towel or pillowcase gets inside. Once they are dried the duvet covers are foled inside out, and I find that it's easier to do the duvets this way. I think it was a Marth Steward video from 2004 that showed me this method. Now i will watch the video to see what this charming lady suggests....
I had a lot of long haired people in a row, so now I wash only right side out and the opening closed to avoid socks or wash cloths getting trapped. Drying in a big machine in the laundromat removes nearly all hair and lint. I searched for a while to find a handheld hoover (really from Hoover), that takes hair from sheets on the bed and from the carpet. The real challenge is hair on the mattress protection. The hoover Works fine.
The best method for changing sheets is doing it with two people. It was fast and funny with my husband, but I remember we changed the shhets in school in pairs (household classes cleaning the campus rooms, cooking for them too) That certainly changed, hotels will not have more than one maid per floor or per two floors.)
