Throughout the course of their lives, people might spend several hours studying their hair in the mirror, but that qualifies very few of them to be trichologists. The branch of medicinal science known as trichology focuses on the study of the hair and scalp, and it’s a field that Agape Jordan is intimately familiar with, thanks to her certification. She puts her knowledge to use creating gentle, hair-restorative scalp treatments free of harsh chemicals. They are suited for those who suffer from a hair-loss disease such as lupus or those in the midst of chemotherapy.

She complements her specialized head-dressing treatments with skin-pampering services for all. Her epidermal services emphasize acne treatments, vitamin C restorative facials, and anti-aging treatments designed to repel the chief causes of aging: homework, bosses, and the undeniable loveliness of Florida.

Attendees of Maple Theater's classic film series, Secret Cinema, only know one thing when they enter the 300-seat auditorium: whether that night's feature was made before or after 1967. Otherwise, every selection is kept tightly under wraps by the series curator and the elves who run the projectors. The rest of the theater's lineup, however, is no secret. Throughout the week, Maple Theater specializes in the latest releases from the world of independent cinema, and features live music every weekend.

After the show, unwind in the theater's bar and WiFi lounge, where 12 taps offer local brews amid elegant drapes and chandelier strands. The bar pairs those pours—plus wines and cocktails—with original American tapas, as well as pretzel bread, veggie spring rolls, and waffle fries. Over at the Great Lakes coffee bar, meanwhile, vintage cameras and projectors surround visitors who stop in for their morning caffeine dose.

The glassy sheet of ice inside John Lindell Ice Arena sets the stage for dramatic spins, casual glides, and furious hip checks. Their full schedule of ice-skating programs as well as open-skate sessions held most days of the week help them cater to skaters of all skill levels. First-timers can learn to balance and make graceful strides up the learning curve through the Learn to Skate program. Alternatively, more experienced skaters can enroll in the arena’s freestyle or hockey-skating programs, which can help them achieve their dream of sleeping surrounded by an army of tiny gold hockey players.

Cranbrook Institute of Science grants visitors an up-close look at a collection of more than 150,000 objects and artifacts that adorn 11 galleries dedicated to natural history and science. Interactive exhibits let visitors feel the fur on a mastodon model, run their fingers along a meteorite, and touch the cast taken from the floor of a now-extinct 500,000-year-old sea. More wonders of the natural world fill the Erb Family Science Garden, where flow pools cascade over three terraces dotted with native plants. To study the world above terra firma, the institute holds nighttime sessions in its research-grade observatory and screens space-related films in its planetarium.

Behind the museum, more than 150 species—from jamaican fruit bats to the malaysian flying fox, the world's largest bat—flap freely through the Bat Zone. During award-winning live shows highlighting how they adapt to living at night, the bats emerge into daylight along with fellow nocturnal critters, two-toed sloths and convenience-store clerks.

For more than 75 years, Cranbook Academy of Art has enjoyed a reputation as one of the nation's leading independent graduate schools for art and design. Renowned graduates such as designer Florence Knoll, architect Hani Rashid, and fiber artist Nick Cave all honed their craft on the verdant 315-acre campus, where crammed lecture halls are replaced with small studios and students enjoy one-on-one mentorships with the Artists-In-Residence. Designed to inspire creativity as much as possible, the academy supplies each student with his or her own private studio space, and allows artists to design their own program of study without formal boundaries or beret-based dress codes.

The Cranbrook campus is a work of art in itself, owing the design of its original buildings to famed Finnish architect Ellel Saarinen. The academy further inspires its graduate students and the surrounding community with a museum that grew out of the eclectic personal collection of George Booth in 1930, and has grown to focus on the art, craft, design, and architecture of the 20th, 21st, and 22nd centuries.

The Jerry Matthews–designed Red Oaks, recently re-opened, features a fun and challenging 9-hole course on well-groomed greens.
