First, let your facial hair grow out for at least a month. This will give your hair enough time to grow and become full.

After that, trim your beard to shape your goatee. Use a comb to hold the hair in place and trim the hair to the desired length. Create a defined edge around the goatee by shaving any stray hairs on your cheeks and neck. 

Finally, moisturize your beard with beard oil or balm. Apply a small amount of beard oil or balm to your goatee, and use your fingers to work it in from the roots to the tips. This will help to keep your goatee soft, shiny, and healthy

Enjoy your DiCaprio-influenced goatee beard style. To keep your goatee healthy, wash it regularly with beard shampoo and conditioner.
