Recently I've made a bunch of rebuses, and this is the newest lot of 6 (note that I've finally used some colour!).

enter image description here

IMPORTANT: update

As of now, everything except three is solved. Of course, you can still have the pleasure of solving them,, but that's not the point... and no, it is not redhead :)


Hard rebuses

Parts I, II and III which most of you have probably done.

  • $\begingroup$ For those solving number 3: there's a red e - ready. This may or may not be relevant! $\endgroup$

PARTIAL

  1. (Helped with designing 1, so I can't answer it. I had no involvement with the rest, though)
  2. High and dry

  3. Redhead?

  4. To-do list

Partial answer:

4.

middle of the road

I suspect this is wrong because I am not "100% sure" (see Wen1now's comment on Rubio's answer), but #1

can be interpreted as an arrow going northeast labelled "1", hence "NE 1" or "anyone".

A possible solution for the last one:

beat around the bush

I'm not sure it's 100% correct;

if the 'h' in that picture is intentionally misplaced, I'm probably missing something. Or the 'bus' is supposed to be 'heavy' ...

$\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, that's correct. I suppose I should have made it be the bush at but that seems a bit obvious. $\endgroup$

Red h-and-ed?

I thought #1 was simply

1up. To one up somebody basically.
