Hibiscus don't mind being trimmed at all. I take it there are new leaves and tiny branches on that one big stem? That will guide you as to where to trim.
A resource I've used and found very helpful is the Tropical Hibiscus Queen of the Tropics web page. Their pruning page is: http://trop-hibiscus.com/bfertins.html
