If you are as hot as we are (96 here today), all I'd do is water them. When things get more "normal" * you can prune and wire.

*I suspect, however, that the intense heat we've had this year and last IS the new normal for most of us.

As always, a picture would help. It is probably a multi-stemmed shrub. You probably need to reduce it to the few thickest trunks.
