Arrow How do you remove a front headrest?

Hello

i have a 2002 bmw 525i

I am trying to remove the headrest of the front seats so i can put on a seat cover,
but i cant find a way to take off the headrest,I am used to seeing a little button to press to release the
'switch' so the headrest can be taken off, but i dont see this button anyway.

Could someone please explain to me the best procedure for doing this?

Thanks!

On my seats, the answer is "pull up really hard". This works for both front and rear headrests.
