Pruning of Crepe Myrtle

While in Georgia, I saw a plant that had been pruned or cut as to where it had only one 3 to 4 inches of tree like stalk. They had kept the trunk trimmed in such a way that the plant bushed and bloomed only at the top in an umbrella type appearance. I have 8 plants that have been set out for 2 full years next spring. What do I need to do in order to get this effect with my plants?
