bending a headrest forward on PRP seat

Anyone have any recommendations on how to do it. I need an inch or so. Pulled the cover and some of the foam off, but dont really want to peal the whole thing apart. What methods has anyone used?

I wrapped the headrest in a towel and stuck it into a hole in a large welding table, then bounced on the body of the seat.

Stip the material to bare steel...squeeze in some device...bounce on the rest of the seat as stated already!
